Discussing the Global Panel's Foresight Report at WHO

The Global Panel on Agriculture and Food Systems for Nutrition presented its Foresight report, which examines the extent to which food systems are delivering healthy diets today and their sustainability, at the Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2). The report shows that unless policymakers act decisively to control diet-related disease and accelerate efforts to reduce undernutrition, all countries will pay a heavy price in terms of mortality, physical health, mental well-being, economic losses, and degradation of the environment. The report concludes with recommendations for senior leaders worldwide relating to public health and well-being, mental health development, education, economic development, urbanization, globalization, and demography.
