UNSCN Food & Nutrition Resource Portal

About the UNSCN "One-Stop-Shop" Food & Nutrition Resource Portal


The UNSCN "One-Stop-Shop" Food & Nutrition Resource Portal provides access to nutrition resources published by theUN SCN as well as those published by the UNSCN members from the three constituencies. The Portal aims to provide the platform through which the agencies and organizations participating in the UNSCN can advertise and disseminate their publications and resources to the UNSCN network worldwide.




Features


The UNSCN Food & Nutrition Resource Portal constitutes an advanced library for food and nutrition resources. Users may identify and access resources added to the Resource Portal through searching for one or more self-defined key words, as well as through browsing in pre-defined categories of themes, resource types, geographical locations* or life cycle focus. Linked to each resource, there is a short description and link to the authoring institution.


Rationale


The Lancet Nutrition Series Paper 5 cites the lack of clear programme guidance as one of the shortcomings of the international nutrition system. Given its tripartite structure, the UNSCN website is a unique portal to access policy and programme guidance developed by the agencies and organizations and provides a platform to promote cooperation among UN agencies and partner organizations.


How to use the SCN Food & Nutrition Resource Portal?


The Resource Portal allows searching by one or more key words of choice, through a simple search in all resources, or through the advanced search in a selection of the resources. Building on the existing Food&Nutrition Library CD-Rom (which can be ordered here), the Resource Portal is organized so that each resource is attributed with a set of characteristics to allow browsing by pre-defined categories of nutrition themes, resource types, life-cycle focus and geographical locations*.

The advanced search allows searching by one or more key words of choice in a selection of resources based on pre-defined categories of nutrition themes, resource types, life-cycle focus and geographical locations*.

Once a search is performed, users may filter results by theme, life-cycle focus, author, language and publication year, or refine search through further narrowing down the results with additional key words.   

Access to and a short description of each resource can be obtained by clicking on an individual resource in the result list. Depending on authorization, resources are physically located on the UNSCN website server and/or hyperlink to the webpage where it was originally web published.


How to add your resources to the UNSCN "One-Stop-Shop" Food and Nutrition Resource Portal?


You may add your organizations' resources to the Portal through a special form where you can describe the resource, upload the document and/or provide a hyperlink to where it has been originally published.

All material will be fully acknowledged to the authors or authoring organizations. We hope that the UNSCN Food & Nutrition Resource Portal will serve as a platform through which the agencies and organizations participating in the UNSCN can advertise and disseminate their publications and resources to the UNSCN network worldwide.
