Photo: Chea Chakriya | Alive & Thrive

This World Environment Day, we will introduce you to the Green Feeding Tool - Innovating to improve nutrition can help meet climate targets. The downloadable tool calculates the carbon and water footprints of countries’ different infant feeding practices. It shows the environmental gains from policy scenarios that enable women and infants to exclusively breastfeed for the first six months.

As well as presentations from the Green Feeding Tool Team at the Australian National University and Alive & Thrive East Asia Pacific, you will hear other expert presentations and user feedback. You will also learn about new research on the carbon and water footprint of commercial milk formula and how to reduce it.
