Ceres2030 Deep Dives into the Nexus of Food Systems, Climate Change, and Diets
The purpose of this report is to provide an overview of findings from the first round of activities for the four components of the project, namely the nutrition profile (Task 1), the data assessment (Task 2), relevant parts of the literature review (Task 3), and the findings of the first consultations (Task 4). Our research is based on diverse sources of information, including the relevant outcomes of the Ceres2030 project, public policy documents, and international databases. Using these sources of information, this report provides an overview of the current economic, social, and climate (mitigation and adaptation) trends in Ethiopia, as well as projections based on the Ceres2030 project model. We also include a brief review of relevant policy documents addressing undernourishment and agricultural development, along with an overview of the approach and early findings from country consultations. The report concludes with a brief summary of relevant national trends and planned next steps in the country-level research and analyses.
