Food and nutrition policy and plans of action : report of the WHO-FAO Iitercountry workshop, Hyderabad, India, 17-21 December 2007
AbstractCountries of the South-East Asia Region are at different stages of development and implementation of national nutrition policies and plans. The experience of WHO and FAO in supporting countries to develop and implement food and nutrition plans indicates that policy-makers of various sectors need the capacity to critically analyze the existing food and nutrition responses so as to fully understand the increasing complexity of food and nutrition policy development. In continuation of these efforts a workshop was organized to facilitate four Member countries to establish and update national intersectoral food and nutrition policies and action plans. The six sessions of the workshop dealt with identifying ongoing trends in food and nutrition, including food news, clarifying the four pillars of good health and nutrition which encompasses food and nutrition plans and policies, forging partnerships, and putting plans into practice. The workshop identified several action lines that attending Member countries would pursue over the coming months.
