Please find attached the contributions of the WHO Department of Nutrition for Health and Development to the online consultation on the Zero Draft of the HLPE report on Nutrition and Food Systems.
Thank you for this opportunity to provide comments. We welcome that the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) has decided to play an important role in advancing nutrition within its mandate and added value, in line with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the outcomes of the Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2). In this context the new HLPE report on Nutrition and Food Systems is timely and highly relevant, and it will be an important basis for future engagements of CFS in advancing nutrition and potentially to its contribution to the UN Decade of Action on Nutrition over the next 10 years 2016-2025.
We hope our comments are helpful and are available for any further clarifications if needed.
