    FAO’s vision for nutrition is a world where all people are eating healthy diets from efficient, inclusive, resilient and sustainable agrifood systems. Multiple actors need to be mobilized to enable this transformation, and small-scale producers and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are particularly important, as they form the backbone of food systems in most countries. However, they face critical finance, policy and capacity development challenges in making their businesses more nutrition-sensitive. FAO is working towards leveraging the potential of local small-scale producers and SMEs as a key to reducing hunger and malnutrition, and improving livelihoods among the poorest and most vulnerable. The project, “Protecting the diets of the most vulnerable people as part of COVID-19 response and recovery programme”. The project aims to strengthen the matching between the supply and demand of safe, nutritious and locally produced food by enhancing the capacities of small-scale producers and SMEs. The project also aims to increase access to food for consumers whose nutritional requirements put them at high risk of malnutrition – such as women of reproductive age, and children.
