On Nutrition Day, nutrition-related discussions in plenary will be Good Practice and Lesson Sharing for Improved Nutrition (IIIc), CFS Advancing Nutrition including the Decade of Action on Nutrition (IIId), and Update on ICN2 Reporting (IIIb). Other sessions throughout the week will explore issues of forestry, gender, urbanization and emerging issues through a food security and nutrition lens.
