The 4th International Congress Hidden Hunger:
Hidden hunger and the transformation of food systems: How to combat the double burden of malnutrition?
The 4th Congress Hidden Hunger is a continuation of the successful, international event series "Congress Hidden Hunger" which started in 2013 in Stuttgart, Germany.
As in case of the previous congresses in this series, the 4th Congress Hidden Hunger taking place in 2019 will bring together members of different disciplines: nutritionists, agricultural scientists, economists and sociologists. Moreover, the congress will encourage the dialogue between scientists, policy-makers and representatives of non-governmental organizations and the private sector. It is dedicated to review the available evidence on the double burden of malnutrition, present new research findings on underlying causes and consequences, feature innovative strategies and discuss the roles and responsibilities of governments, development organizations, civil society and the private sector in combating the double burden of malnutrition.
The "Congress Hidden Hunger" provides a platform for global interactions of members belonging to the scientific community, representatives from politics, government and the media as well as members of civil society organizations, advocacy groups and private and public sector bodies. The considerable and continuous feedback to the first three congresses convinced the organizers to host the 4th Congress Hidden Hunger with the title "Hidden hunger and the transformation of food systems: How to combat the double burden of malnutrition?".
