Training & e-learning

Improving nutrition through agriculture and food systems

This is a training course on nutrition-sensitive agriculture and food systems. Using two realistic scenarios, this course illustrates the linkages between agriculture, food systems and nutrition, and describes existing opportunities for integrating nutrition into food system policies, investments and programmes. The course offers a series of examples of nutrition-sensitive policies and interventions, as well as an overview of the main initiatives and commitment on nutrition.

The course is designed to assist professionals from any fields related to agriculture and food systems (inputs and production, processing, storage, transport and retailing, consumption) that are involved in shaping and implementing nutrition-sensitive programmes, investments and policies. 

This course is also available as a downloadable package in Russian. The translation and adaptation into Russian language and to the conditions of Europe and Central Asia was carried out by the Eurasian Center for Food Security (ECFS) and the project “Developing Capacity for Strengthening Food  Security  and  Nutrition  in  Selected  Countries  of  the Caucasus and Central Asia” funded by the Russian Federation.
