Lagos Business School (LBS), in partnership with Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), will organise a workshop with the theme: “Nutrition in Agriculture and Food Processing: A Gender Lens.”

This workshop, holding April 30, this year in Lagos, is to identify opportunities for integrating nutrition along the agricultural value chain, to deconstruct agricultural value chains, to expose women’s roles as well as the opportunities to improve nutrition and potential health outcome.

The workshop will also provide an opportunity to hear from key leaders in government, industry and NGOs about opportunities in food production systems for better nutrition. The outcome is expected to impact positively on the Federal Government’s roadmap on agriculture in Nigeria.

A select group of leaders in the public and private sectors including top government officials, heads of multilateral organisations, commercial officers of diplomatic missions and chief executives of select companies operating in the agro-allied, food and beverages and the financial industries are expected at the forum.

The keynote address will be delivered by Jay Naidoo, chairperson, GAIN, Geneva, Switzerland. Other speakers are Ngozi Nnam, president, Nutrition Society of Nigeria, Gbolahan Lawal, commissioner of agriculture and co-operatives, Lagos State, and others.

GAIN is a non-profit organisation driven by the vision of a world without malnutrition.
