FAO: Toolkit and E-learning modules on Nutrition-Sensitive Agriculture and Food Systems.

25 Apr

The “Toolkit for Nutrition-Sensitive Agriculture and Food Systems” is composed of four tools:

Key recommendations for improving nutrition through agriculture and food systems

Designing nutrition-sensitive agriculture investments. Checklist and guidance for programme formulation

Nutrition-sensitive agriculture and food systems in practice. Options for intervention

Compendium of indicators for nutrition-sensitive agriculture.

The E-learning modules on Nutrition-Sensitive Agriculture and Food Systems use a scenario-based and experiential learning approach to assist policy makers and programme managers to effectively integrate nutrition in their work.

Two modules are already available online:

Nutrition, Food Security and Livelihoods: Basic concepts

Improving Nutrition through Agriculture and Food Systems

 In addition to the Toolkit and E-Learning series on Nutrition-Sensitive Agriculture and Food Systems, the Guidelines and E-learning modules "Agreeing on causes of malnutrition for joint action" are also available online. These are key resources to assist professionals involved in development, emergency and resilience building programmes who seek to promote integrated planning across sectors for sustainable improvements in nutrition.

All resources are freely available and downloadable at:
