About the International Year of Millets

EVENT NAME:
Food—International Year of Millets
EVENT CATEGORIES:
Food , Environment Space & The Outdoors
Dates Active:
Begins: Jan 01, 2023
Ends: Dec 31, 2023

DESCRIPTION:

From the United Nations (edited for clarity):

"Millets are among the first plants to be domesticated and are considered "Nutri-cereals" due to their high nutritional content. They have served as a traditional staple for hundreds of millions of people in Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia for 7,000 years and are now cultivated worldwide.

However, their cultivation is declining in many countries, and their potential to address climate change and food security is not fully realized. This is even though millets can grow on relatively poor soils and under adverse and arid conditions, with comparatively fewer inputs than other cereals.

The need to promote millets' diversity and nutritional and ecological benefits to consumers, producers, value chain actors, and decision-makers is timely and can improve food sector linkages.

As such, the Government of India brought forward a proposal for an International Year of Millets (2023) and endorsed by Members of FAO Governing Bodies and by the 75th Session of the UN General Assembly."
