Nutrition policies and programmes

FAO provides technical assistance to Member States and relevant partners to improve the capacity of key regional and country stakeholders as well as platforms to advocate, design, implement, support, and evaluate policies, programmes and investments that shape food systems towards achieving Zero Hunger and eradicating all forms of malnutrition through sustainable and healthy diets.

What we do​

We work with all food systems actors to increase coherence and convergence in the areas of governance, policies, programmes, and investments to create an enabling environment for the eradication of hunger and all forms of malnutrition. Find out more about our work:
