Communicating to Inspire Change: Dialogues on Nutrition
No matter how it is defined, nutrition is basically what we eat, the products of the food and agriculture sector.
We can improve our diets, our health and protect our natural resources by working on the food systems – on how we produce, collect, store, transport, transform and distribute foods. The consumer not only needs to have access to sufficient and good quality food, but also to be educated on what constitutes a healthy diet and motivated to make sound food choices.
The Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2), the first intergovernmental conference in the 21st century to address the world’s nutrition issues, will be held at FAO headquarters in Rome, Italy on 19 - 21 November 2014. Jointly organized by FAO, the World Health Organization (WHO) and other partners, ICN2 will convene high-level government officials and stakeholders to agree on policies that more effectively address today’s critical nutrition challenges. The goal of the conference is to propose a flexible policy framework that addresses major nutrition challenges and to identify priorities for enhanced international cooperation on nutrition.
