The GYA membership will allow Dr. Udenigwe to pursue his goal of fostering the global food system from a multidisciplinary perspective. Dr. Udenigwe hopes to provide expertise in food and nutritional sciences in developing transversal strategies for addressing the Zero Hunger target of the GYA and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Dr. Udenigwe will use the GYA platform to expand his efforts in building stronger scientific networks for knowledge exchange on interconnectivity of the food system and nutrition challenges, with young and established scientists, the private sector and policymakers in economically developed and developing regions.

The Global Young Academy provides a rallying point for outstanding young scientists from around the world to come together to address topics of global importance.
