Abstract: In line with the First Action Plan for Food and Nutrition Policy for the WHO European Region, 2000-2005, endorsed by the Regional Committee for Europe in 2000, Member States are encouraged to develop sound and sustainable food and nutrition policies. Several surveys on food and nutrition policy were carried out between 1994 and 1999. This report presents the data collected during these surveys. The aim is to compare the situation of food and nutrition policies in the Region and to show trends. The analyses present a broad picture of policy development and nutritional health in the WHO European Region. Countries where national food and nutrition coordination bodies exist appear to be the most effective in developing and implementing policies. Both a summary report (presenting data by subregion) and a full report (presenting information by country) are available
