Exploring How Food and Agriculture Policy Mapping and Analysis Can Support Nutrition Planning

FAO’s Nutrition and Agricultural Economics Divisions commissioned a stocktaking of food and agriculture policy mapping initiatives, with the objectives of understanding what information is available and how that information can be used to inform nutrition agriculture planning. Findings show that multiple initiatives are underway to map and analyze food and agriculture policies. Many of these initiatives’ outputs represent an untapped resource for better understanding how food and agriculture policies impact the producer and consumer behaviours which shape food environments and eventually, nutrition.
