Little Fish, Big Impact: Transforming School Meals through Local Aquatic Foods

At the nexus of school meals, nutrition, and climate resilience, there lies an untapped opportunity to integrate locally sourced, sustainable aquatic foods into school meals. As the COP Presidency has clearly indicated the important role that food systems will play at this year’s COP 28 Conference, the pivotal role of aquatic foods in ensuring nutrition and food security for some of the world’s most malnourished and climate-vulnerable populations cannot be overlooked. When sourced or grown sustainably, aquatic foods can increase food and nutrition security, bolster community economies, sustain livelihoods, and protect our planet. Through innovative national strategies and collaborative programs, regions across the world are embracing aquatic foods and the potential they have to support the development and health of children. From Africa to Europe, real-world examples underscore the potential of this approach for supporting nutrition outcomes, ensuring healthier children, thriving local communities, and a more resilient planet.

Stories of Change: Climate Resilience in Bangladesh

Food loss and waste is a key contributor to the climate crisis. Ambitious multi-sector and multi-stakeholder solutions are needed to achieve SDG12.3 - to halve food loss and waste (FLW) by 2030 - and deliver nutrition security. Philanthropy can play a critical role in catalyzing these solutions and delivering meaningful local action.
