The Rome-based Agencies (RBAs) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO)’s Global Forum on Food Security and Nutrition (FSN Forum) are joining forces for an online consultation, which is now open through 17 April, entitled, “How can value chains be shaped to improve nutrition?”

Nutrition-sensitive value chains (NSVC) have been identified as a key area where collaboration can be strengthened to enhance progress towards ending malnutrition in all its forms.

With this online exchange, the RBAs invite all interested stakeholders to contribute to the identification of challenges and opportunities related to NSVC development, improved collaboration among partners, and the identification of good practices and lessons learned from past or ongoing NSVC experiences on the ground.

The output of this consultation will be an important input for the RBAs to refine their approach to nutrition-sensitive value chain development, and to move from Principles to Action, bringing this approach to ongoing operations in the field.

The online consultation is open from 27 March to 17 April 2017. Further information on the topic and details on how to participate can be accessed on the FAO website in English, French, Russian, and Spanish through the following links:
