    This publication is the first step in a series of coordinated efforts between FAO and WHO to end hunger, achieve food security, improve nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture, so that our Member States can achieve Goal 2 of the ODS. Hopefully this effort will also motivate governments, international development agencies, donors, the private sector and civil society to coordinate actions to end hunger and malnutrition. The present text is the executive summary of the 2016 edition of the Pa norama of Food and Nutrition Security in Latin America and the Caribbean, an annual publication prepared by the Regional Office for Latin America and the Caribbean of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), and the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) / Regional Office for the Americas of the World Health Organization (WHO). For the purposes of communication and dissemination, all references and bibliographic citations have been removed from the text, which can be found in the full Panorama document (in Spanish).

    Climate change and food security and nutrition Latin America and the Caribbean (policy guidelines) 2016
    Also available in:

    Latin America and the Caribbean have shown significant progress in matters of food security and nutrition, which led them to meet the goal undertaken in the Millennium Development Goals (MDG). Well, these progresses are threatened, among other factors, by climate change and the effects it can have over areas as diverse as food production, income generation, the availability of natural resources or the domestic food supply. The work herein presented by the FAO Regional Office for Latin America a nd the Caribbean shows how climate change affects each of the four dimensions of Food Security and Nutrition: the availability, access, utilization and stability of food. This publication is the first in a series that will approach these matters, in order to produce information to further develop synergies among different policy areas relevant to our region. At the same time, it is an additional element in the cooperation FAO has been carrying out to sustain and support the implementation of F ood Security and Nutrition strategies, within the context of climate change, as a key background to consolidate sustainable development in the region.

    Also available in:

    The Panorama of Food and Nutrition Security is an annual publication of FAO’s Regional Office for Latin America and the Caribbean which includes, in a single document, the results of its ongoing analysis on the situation of hunger, malnutrition and poverty in the region. Through its successive editions, the Panorama has attempted to provide a comprehensive overview of the four dimensions of food and nutrition security: availability, access, utilization and stability, by analysing its indicators: the situation of undernutrition and malnutrition, food production, agri-food trade, poverty and inequality and economic growth, among others. It is worth emphasizing that food and nutrition security is a complex and multidimensional issue that concerns several sectors and demands a holistic and integrated approach.
