Scientists from around the world are collaborating on a five-year long project to improve the diet, nutritional status and ultimately health of vulnerable populations.

The project launched by the UN's International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will assess the impact on children and women's health when more nutritious food is produced and eaten.

It could provide important information which will contribute to an overhaul of agriculture policies and practices.
