International Year of Pulses
The International Year of Pulses is a United Nations-sponsored initiative that aims to promote the production and consumption of pulses around the world. Pulses are a type of legume that includes beans, lentils, and chickpeas, and they are an important source of protein, fiber, and other nutrients.
The International Year of Pulses will focus on increasing awareness of the nutritional and agricultural benefits of pulses, and on promoting their production and consumption. One of the main goals of the initiative is to encourage more people to include pulses in their diet, as they are an affordable and nutritious food that can help improve the health of both individuals and communities.
