    Report on the Outcome of the Asia and the Pacific Symposium on Sustainable Food Systems for Healthy Diets and Improved Nutrition 2018
    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.
