FAO toolkit on nutrition-sensitive agriculture and food systems

Categories: Inter-Cluster News / News / 2 CommentsPosted on: April 18, 2017

The FAO toolkit is an integrated package of guidance on how to design, implement, monitor and evaluate nutrition-sensitive food and agriculture policies and programmes. It is the result of a consultative process within FAO and with external partners, including development partners (in particular the World Bank and the European Commission), NGOs and academia. For more information, see http://www.fao.org/nutrition/policies-programmes/toolkit/en/ or below invitation to the launch on 19 April in Rome.


The Economic and Social Development Department cordially invites you to a launch event:

19 April 2017 | 12:00 – 13:00 hrs. Sheikh Zayed Centre


Join us to discover FAO’s toolkit and e-learning module on nutrition-sensitive food systems! 


Moderator: Anna Lartey, Director, Nutrition and Food Systems Division, ESN


Daniel J. Gustafson, Deputy Director-General Programmes, DDP
Kostas Stamoulis, Assistant Director-General, Economic and Social Development Department, ES

Kazumi Ikeda Larhed, Deputy Director, Partnerships, Advocacy and Capacity Development Division, OPC

Charlotte Dufour, Nutrition Officer, ESN

Domitille Kauffmann, Nutrition Consultant, ESN

The toolkit and e-learning modules have been developed by ESN in close collaboration with OPC, drawing upon expertise from across the organization and of many partners (incl. EU, WB, UN agencies, NGOs, academia).

They are important resources for scaling up country and regional efforts to build capacities for the formulation, implementation and monitoring of nutrition-sensitive food system policies and programmes, in line with the Rome Declaration on Nutrition, the SDGs and UN Decade of Action for Nutrition. They are also important internal assets

for corporate efforts to mainstream nutrition in FAO’s Strategic Framework.

We look forward to seeing you at this official launch event. For our colleagues in Decentralized Offices, the event will be webcast on http://intranet.fao.org/stream/?id=4333.

    Dear Madam/Sir,

    Not being in the area, but very interested in this Programme, I was wondering if it was possible to obtain a print out of this FAO Toolkit. I have three years ago participated in the “Nutrition Cluster Coordinator” training session in Rome with UNFAO/WFP, and worked as “Emergency Nutrition Cluster Coordinator” and “Food Security and Agriculture Cluster Coordinator” in a Surge Capacity in both CAR and Afghanistan.

    Please advise,

    Dr Reginald Xavier, MD

    I would certainly be very much interested in receiving it.
