Strengthening nutrition action: a resource guide for countries based on the policy recommendations of the Second International Conference on Nutrition (‎‎ICN2)

The Strengthening Nutrition Action resource guide is part of the follow-up to the Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2) that was held in November 2014 in Rome, Italy. It aims at guiding countries to translate the 60 recommended policies and actions of the voluntary ICN2 Framework for Action into more binding concrete country-specific commitments for action on nutrition. This process should be done according to the national needs and conditions, and be built on existing policies, strategies, programmes, plans and investments in order to achieve the 10 commitments of the Rome Declaration on Nutrition.

This resource guide is structured around 24 themes that are unpacking the ICN2 Framework for Action policy recommendations and is intended primarily for policy advisors supporting decision-makers and development partners involved in multisectoral food and nutrition-related policy-making processes.
