Healthy Food Africa


Improving access to nutritious food is a systemic challenge. In order to foster healthier diets, it is necessary to go beyond expanding the diversity of products on the supply side, or raising awareness on the demand side. HealthyFoodAfrica aims to increase the resilience of food systems, and to link food production to nutrition performance, thereby increasing the range and quality of food products for a healthy diet. To achieve this, it engages with farmers, food processors, retailers, civil society organisations (CSOs), policymakers and local experts, and helps them create, and test, innovative technologies, practices and governance arrangements that contribute to a more sustainable, resilient and healthy food system for all.

Risk management of imported plants and seeds: possibilities for improved pest detection to prevent the introduction and spread of new pests


Plant pathogens and invertebrates harmful to plants continue to threaten food security and natural habitats. In Norway, the responsibility of performing plant health inspections on imported plants has gradually shifted to importers of plants who are currently responsible for internal pest control and must be registered with the Norwegian Food Safety Authority.
