Improving Diets and Nutrition: Food-based Approaches

This 300-plus page book provides a comprehensive look at nutrition security through community agriculture. Drawing on experience captured during the Proceedings of the International Symposium on Food and Nutrition Security: Food-Based Approaches for Improving Diets and Raising Levels of Nutrition, this resource provides perspectives from policy and program experiences and highlights FAO’s unique contributions to improving nutrition through agriculture. The symposium recognized across discussions that household-and food-focused approaches, as well as increased attention on governance and gender-based interventions, present the best potential for moving forward.
