Abstracts should showcase success stories and promising approaches relevant at the climate-food-health nexus. For example this could include strategies to combat malnutrition and lessen the burden of stunting in a changing climate and to reduce the risk of disease in agricultural systems that are expanding to meet global demands for food, especially animal source foods.
