eLearning module on improving nutrition through agriculture and food systems

News

The new eLearning module ‘Improving Nutrition through Agriculture and Food Systems’ is now online. It is designed to assist professionals from any fields related to food security, agriculture and food systems that are involved in designing and implementing nutrition-sensitive programmes, investments and policies.  The module uses a scenario-based and experiential learning approach to illustrate the linkages between agriculture, food systems and nutrition. It provides a series of examples of nutrition-sensitive policies and interventions and gives an overview of global and regional initiatives and commitments related to nutrition on which learners can build to integrate nutrition in their work.

This module was developed by FAO’s Nutrition and Food Systems Division and Partnerships, Advocacy and Capacity Development Division, in collaboration with the World Bank and European Union, and with technical inputs from many partners.

It is available in the FAO e-learning page:  www.fao.org/elearning/#/elc/en/course/NFS
