FAO's Nutrition Division Director, Anna Lartey (far right), discusses ICN2 preparations with stakeholders from civil society and U.S. government agencies.
The FAO North America Liaison Office, on July 14, hosted a briefing on the upcoming Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2) jointly organized by FAO and WHO. Anna Lartey, Director of FAO's Nutrition Division, presented an overview on preparations for the conference and its expected outcomes to representatives of civil society organizations and U.S. government agencies.
One of the central purposes of ICN2 is to promote policy coherence on nutrition issues at a national, regional and global level. The event will also contribute to "mainstreaming nutrition in the food and agriculture and health sectors," Ms. Lartey said. Nutrition challenges have grown far more complex in the past few decades, with various forms of malnutrition ranging from extreme hunger, undernutrition and micronutrient deficiencies to obesity.
Today, 842 million people are undernourished, 2 billion people are affected by micronutrient deficiencies and 500 million adults are obese. No country or region is immune: in Africa, obesity rates are rising, Ms. Lartey noted.
In this current landscape, nutrition must be approached "comprehensively," she said, highlighting that ICN2 is helping national governments think about their health and agriculture policies as complementary in order to solve these problems.
...
As Ms. Lartey pointed out, the conference will "chart the path for the next ten years" of nutrition policy as it brings together high-level representatives from most countries - including Heads of State and Pope Francis - on the road to improve diets and end all forms of malnutrition.
