Investments for Healthy Food Systems 9 May 2017, 09:30 – 17:00 CEST FAO, Red Room, Rome, Italy

This event is part of a series of events to “develop common understanding of issues and lay the basis for informed CFS policy convergence work” on nutrition and food systems, called for by the strategy “CFS engagement in advancing nutrition”. In line with this strategy, this event aims to increase common understanding about how policies and investment opportunities can improve nutrition through healthier food systems, the theme was proposed by the CFS Open Ended Working Group on Nutrition, based on the UNSCN Discussion Paper on the topic.  It is intended as a useful contribution to build learning in advance of CFS policy convergence on nutrition and food systems, anticipated after CFS 44. This event will highlight the opportunities and constraints that different food systems offer for interventions for good nutrition and human health.  It will share different examples of different food systems and investments together with the learning regarding their implications also on other sectors by discussing linkages, tensions and trade-offs.
It is a specific objective of this event to provide ample opportunity for dialogue and exchange among all participants.
The event will be webcast and can be followed on: www.fao.org/webcast/
Interpretation services will be provided in all UN official languages.
