Theme 1: Key lessons
The ZHC hits the proverbial nail on the head, providing a useful framework for addressing the problems of malnutrition. The concept of sustainable diets encompasses all aspects of the ZHC, and can be considered one of the direct responses. [Definition: Sustainable Diets are those diets with low environmental impacts which contribute to food and nutrition security and to healthy life for present and future generations. Sustainable diets are protective and respectful of biodiversity and ecosystems, culturally acceptable, accessible, economically fair and affordable; nutritionally adequate, safe and healthy; while optimizing natural and human resources. FAO, 2010.]
