CFS Intersessional events on Nutrition: Impact Assessment of Policies to support Healthy Food Environment and Healthy Diets
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”. Following a first event held 9 May 2017 on “Investments for healthy food systems”, this event aims to increase common understanding of the importance of impact assessment of policies as a tool to improve food environments and diets, as well as the steps and basic data needed to establish a nutrition impact assessment tool.
The theme was proposed by the CFS Open Ended Working Group on Nutrition, based on a UNSCN discussion paper on the topic.
This event will highlight the importance of impact assessment of policies to build or support Healthy Food Environment and Healthy Diets. It will share different examples of impact assessments and stress the need for metrics to progress further on healthy diet and improved nutrition.
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
