Post a reply: New FAO e-learning module on Improving Nutrition through Agriculture and Food Systems!

Use of en-net is subject to the Terms and Conditions.

Dear colleagues, it is a great pleasure to announce that the new eLearning module Improving Nutrition through Agriculture and Food Systems is on line and available in the FAO e-learning page at the link: www.fao.org/elearning/#/elc/en/course/NFS

The module is designed to assist professionals from any fields related to food security, agriculture and food systems that are involved in designing and implementing nutrition-sensitive programmes, investments and policies.

The module uses a scenario-based and experiential learning approach to illustrate the linkages between agriculture, food systems and nutrition. It provides a series of examples of nutrition-sensitive policies and interventions and gives an overview of global and regional initiatives and commitments related to nutrition on which learners can build to integrate nutrition in their work.

It is a resource in support of the UN Decade of Action for Nutrition and the implementation of the ICN2 Framework of Action, which advocates for mainstreaming nutrition in food and agriculture policies and investments.

This module was developed by FAO’s Nutrition and Food Systems Division and Partnerships, Advocacy and Capacity Development Division, in collaboration with the World Bank and European Union, and with technical inputs from many partners. I take this opportunity to thank all those of you who have contributed to the curriculum design, content review and provision of case studies.

I take the opportunity to highlight other e-learning modules related to nutrition-sensitive planning developed by FAO:
- Nutrition, Food Security and Livelihoods: Basic concepts: www.fao.org/elearning/#/elc/en/course/NFSLBC - short course on the basics of nutrition
- Agreeing on causes of malnutrition for joint action: www.fao.org/elearning/#/elc/en/course/ACMJA - a key resource to improve the understanding of the multi-sectoral causes of malnutrition and support integrated nutrition planning.
- A new e-learning module, From nutrition situation analysis to nutrition-sensitive project design, monitoring and evaluation is being developed and expected to be released during 2017.

I hope you will enjoy the course! Your feedback on these modules will be very welcome, and please do not hesitate to share this resource in your networks!
