In a major step towards eradicating malnutrition worldwide, over 170 countries on Wednesday made a number of concrete commitments and adopted a series of recommendations on policies and investments aimed at ensuring that all people have access to healthier and more sustainable diets.
Ministers and senior officials responsible for health, food or agriculture and other aspects of nutrition adopted the Rome Declaration on Nutrition and a Framework for Action, which set out recommendations for policies and programmes to address nutrition across multiple sectors.
The move came at the opening, in Rome, of the Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2), organised by the FAO and the World Health Organization (WHO), according to a FAO media release.
