Event Description

The course is job-oriented and the training approach is interactive, experience as well as evidence-based: it provides the participants with the possibility to learn from expert facilitators as well as from each other. Transfer of knowledge goes hand in hand with case studies, working groups, etc. A mix of participants with different backgrounds, yet common interests, will provide a good basis for the exchange of experiences.

The course focus on options available within food systems to deliver high-quality diets to different population groups. The course addresses the following topics:
- Principles and indicators of a food system, and healthy diets in different population groups and how are they related;
- linkages between national, regional and global food systems;
- food system public and private stakeholders and their interaction, partnerships and alliances;
- policy issues and actions relevant to sustainable food systems transformations for healthy diets;
- designing programs implementing priority actions based on the local context, balancing health with social, ecological and economic sustainability outcomes;
- monitoring and evaluation food system changes and results;
