Nutrition and food systems – A report by the High Level Panel of Experts on Food Security and Nutrition
The aim of this report is 1) to analyse how food systems influence people’s dietary patterns and nutritional outcomes; and 2) to highlight effective policies and programmes that have the potential to shape food systems, contribute to improved nutrition and sustainability.
Illustrated by short case studies reflecting the wide variety of practical experiences in different contexts, this report provides a set of action-oriented recommendations to states, the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) and other stakeholders to inform their contributions to the UN Decade of Action on Nutrition (2016–2025).
