Dear colleagues,

I would like to share this book launch [1] event invite which might be of interest of some. Details below.

I am looking forward to learning more from the work done by colleagues at Scottish Poverty and Inequality Research Unit. GODAN has invited colleagues at Scottish Poverty and Inequality Research Unit for webinar and discussions as part of the GODAN Food Poverty Working Group [2], so we can learn more and work together on Zero Hunger Aim.

I am grateful to everyone, everywhere working for Zero Hunger Aim.

Best wishes,


Dr Suchith Anand
