The agricultural sector presents key opportunities in the medical field for improving nutrition and health. One area of impact is the ability to produce, purchase and consume more, better, and cheaper food. Biofortification efforts to breed and disseminate crops that are rich in micronutrients and reduce adverse effects on the environment are an important contribution towards nutrition and health, allowing people to improve their diets.
CONMEDEC understands that the critical first step to the integration of agriculture into the medical field is improved knowledge on the agriculture-nutrition-health nexus. We promote “smarter” growth by consulting about the health and nutrition impacts of different subsectoral patterns of agricultural development. This is crucial to investments in research, evaluation, and education systems capable of integrating information from all three sectors.
We can help your organization minimize the risks and maximize the benefits to nutrition and health across the entire value chain, from field to fork, including the development and dissemination of more nutritious, biofortified food consumed by poor people, and public information campaigns and pricing policies that address both undernutrition and obesity.
CONMEDEC also provides consulting services for sustainable agriculture. Our goal is to advise your organization about how you can help meet society’s food and textile needs in the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. This includes how to provide a healthy environment, economic profitability, and social and economic equity. Our services are available to growers, food processors, distributors, retailers, consumers, biotech organizations, and waste managers.
We can advise your organization in areas of soil health, minimization of water usage, lower pollution levels, and systems that improve farm workers well-being, and how to be more environmentally friendly. Combining biology, economics, engineering, chemistry, community development, and many other areas, we can show you how sustainable agriculture is more than a collection of practices, but a way of doing business and helping your community work together to solve complex problems about how we grow our food and fiber.
