    The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO), World Food Programme (WFP), United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), and South Asia Food and Nutrition Security Initiative (SAFANSI) of the World Bank (WB) jointly organized the “Asia Pacific Symposium on Sustainable Food Systems for Healthy Diets and Improved Nutrition – Accelerating Nutrition”, held in Bangkok, Thailand on 10–11 November 2017. The symposium focused on exploring policies and programmatic options for shaping food systems in ways that deliver healthy foods for a healthy and sustainable diet, with an emphasis on concrete country experiences and challenges. The meeting was organized with the following objectives: 1) enhance agriculture and food systems’ visibility, create policy and programme options, promote sustainable diets and build partnerships through taking stock of evidence on transformational change in food systems toward sustainability, and their link to positive health and nutrition outcomes; 2) develop and strengthen information platforms on nutrition-sensitive agriculture and food systems for countries in the region so that countries can share that knowledge among consumers, producers and other stakeholders; 3) identify and promote major interventions for good nutrition governance and effective local level implementation; and 4) create synergies between regional policy actions and regional networks, including the Sustainable Development Goals, ICN2 Framework for Action, Decade of Action on Nutrition, and national multisector action plans and non-communicable diseases work plans. The sessions highlighted the following subthemes: a) supply side policies and measures for increasing access to healthy diets; b) demand side policies and measures for increasing access and empowering consumers to choose healthy diets; and c) measures to strengthen accountability, resilience, and equity within the food system. The symposium clearly highlighted that action on nutrition in Asia and the Pacific is far from complete.

    The Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific (RAP) of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO), World Food Programme (WFP), United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and South Asia Food and Nutrition Security Initiative (SAFANSI) of the World Bank, organized the “Asia and the Pacific Regional Symposium on Sustainable Food Systems for Healthy Diets and Improved Nutrition”. The symposium was organized as a regional follow-up to the FAO/WHO International Symposium on the same theme, which took place in December 2016 at FAO headquarters, Rome. The objective of the meeting was to share experiences and evidence of policies and interventions in agriculture and food systems with a potential to contribute to positive nutritional outcomes. The symposium called upon all stakeholders to create synergies between global, regional and national actions outlined in relevant policy frameworks, including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Framework for Action of the Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2) and the United Nations Decade of Action on Nutrition, as well as related national multisector action plans and non-communicable diseases work plans. It also called upon UN agencies to jointly implement concrete actions to support the countries in achieving their food security and nutrition agenda. The outcomes of the deliberations are summarized in this information note.
