This report is an outcome of the Urban Food System Assessments for Nutrition (UFSAN) project of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). The objectives of the UFSAN project were to: develop and pilot a holistic tool to assess nutrition and food systems in urban areas, with the aim to guide policies, programmes and investments towards a range of potential food system actions that promote better nutrition and healthy diets; pilot the tool in four cities: Ahmedabad and Pune, in India, and Pokhara and Kathmandu, in Nepal; and disseminate the findings of the UFSAN tool among nutrition and food systems stakeholders in these cities.
