In our fifth segment, the Platform talks to Nadine Gbossa, Director, Food Systems Coordination, IFAD; Chief, Means of Implementation, UN Food Systems Coordination Hub, and Dede Ekoue, Country Director of Nigeria, IFAD.
We hear about the complexities and examples of transforming food systems, from both an overview perspective of the Coordination Hub and from the ground. What's clear is that coordination at the country level is vital to any hope of making a difference.
