    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.

    An account of the consultation at the FAO regional office in Bangkok from 20 to 23 November 2001, which was attended by representatives of Bangladesh, Fiji, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Nepal, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Vanuatu and Viet Nam. The experts reviewed progress by countries in the region toward implementing food based dietary guidelines to assist in the choice of the right kind and right amount of food by people in Asia-Pacific countries. The past two decades have seen a size able increase in food production and consumption in the region, but the average diet still lacks dietary diversity, giving rise to micronutrient malnutrition and widespread protein energy malnutrition. The publication includes country presentations at the session and the recommendations that emerged from it for national action and to guide FAO's future work in this field. It also includes a section on the implementation of FAO's unique nutrition education endeavour - Feeding Minds, Fighting Hung er, a partnership of schools, governments, inter-governmental organizations, nutrition experts and non-governmental organizations.

    Improving Nutrition Programmes - An Assessment Tool For Action (Revised Edition) 2005
    Also available in:

    A strong recommendation of the 1992 FAO/WHO International Conference on Nutrition was that each country should develop and implement a national plan of action on nutrition. Most countries now undertake a range of nutrition activities to tackle their nutrition problems. In some cases, these activities form a cohesive national nutrition programme. In other cases, nutrition problems are tackled through a number of focused nutrition projects or programmes, addressing one or more specific n utrition problems, geographic areas or vulnerable groups. Many countries also have externally-funded programmes of varying dimensions and scope.
