This thematic collection contains the Glossary of commonly used nutrition terms in Arabic, English, Chinese, French, Spanish and Russian.

The 90 terms selected by the former Nutrition Division, ESN (now Nutrition and Food Systems Division), were jointly developed with the Meeting Programming and Documentation Service, CPAM, as part of the preparations for the Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2) held on 19-21 November, 2014.

This is part of FAO’s efforts to enhance language use and to standardize technical terminology for its meetings, documentation and publications. It also promotes standard best practices for terminology management and storage, facilitating growth, interoperability and exchange.

This Glossary will serve to facilitate multilingual communication and documentation in FAO's efforts to improve food and nutrition security, and to enhance international cooperation in these fields.
