FOODSECURE Working papers from LEI Wageningen UR

Abstract: Institutional and technological innovations on food and nutrition security (FNS). Impact assessments have been undertaken by various organizations. It is widely acknowledged that innovations in agriculture and other sectors have a remarkable impact on FNS. While the impact assessments of such innovations mostly focus on a specific type of innovation and FNS outcome, our meta-analysis expands the assessment to several types of innovations and their multiple impacts, including on agricultural production and distribution, environmental aspects and nutrition outcomes. The meta-analysis is complemented by a survey of stakeholders' perceptions about the impacts of innovations for FNS. Drawing on the meta-analysis and the survey results, we discuss a framework for the development of FNS innovation scenarios.
