Food Systems and Nutrition – Handbook for Parliamentarians

It introduces nutrition and food systems, identifies entry points for parliamentary interventions to improve diet and nutrition through a food-systems approach and recommends actions parliaments and parliamentarians can take in terms of their mandates – legislation, oversight, budget and representation.

This handbook was prepared by the Inter-Parliamentary Union and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, in collaboration with the Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Movement, the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the African Union Development Agency’s New Partnership for Africa’s Development (AUDA-NEPAD).
