- Previous Country Case Studies
The SCN has prepared and published Country Case Studies, most recently as preparations for the 32nd SCN Session in Brasilia, 2005. the 2005 Country Case Studies carried out in Angola, Brazil, Bolivia and Mozambique focused on how to strengthen national nutrition plans to achieve the MDGs within a human rights based context. These case studies showed it was possible to position food and nutrition within a legal framework and hold governments accountable, and the studies also recalled earlier work by the SCN on Country Case Studies. The 2005 studies represented the first time that country level issues had been brought into mainstream discussions at an SCN Session. At the 32nd SCN Session, the countries signed a joint declaration, of great symbolic importance and a real initiative.
Previously, SCN has published Country Case Studies from Brazil, Egypt, India, Tanzania, Indonesia, Zimbabwe and Thailand.
