My name is Emily Levitt Ruppert and I am contributing to the discussion as a member of the FAO/WFP Facilitation Team with a specific interest in nutrition. In reviewing the submissions so far, and with specific reference to Theme 1 (Opportunities and Challenges) and Theme 2 (“How” should malnutrition challenges be addressed?), I've picked out a few lines I think deserve further discussion. One quote I find particularly thought provoking is:
"...there has been knowledge that the war against malnutrition can only be fought at the community level, but the community-based and decentralization approaches are seriously missing in all actions."
Looking forward to your feedback on the above.
