Declaring the Decade is a great start to maximising concerted efforts in nutrition. It provides an ovearching platform for nutrition interventions and advocacy. However, we need to localize global concepts and contexts to suit the needs of our smaller island nations; and we'll need technical support and expertise.

Fiji is currently revising its Fiji Food and Nutrition Policy, that will be operationalized by the Fiji Plan of Action for Nutrition 2016-2020. We have already gleaned from international documents to provide the framework for interventions, with the focus being children U5. Some of the activities are funded by the Government, while others will be taken care of by donor funds.
