dc.description Presented at the International Food Security Dialogue 2014 : theme “Nutritional security ‐ relations between food, agriculture, health and nutrition” en
dc.description.abstract Delivered at the International Food Security Dialogue conference (2014) this presentation provides information regarding the successful Canadian International Food Security Research Fund (CIFSRF) food security project. Slides present statistical information about farm productivity; child health and obesity; project goals, and how the integrated project model was created and implemented. Equipped with drip irrigation and other agricultural technologies, local farmers delivered about 20 tons of new nutritious produce in one year to the school feeding program (SFP) in St. Kitts – a remarkable feat in food procurement in the Eastern Caribbean. en
