Food Environment Working Group Technical Brief: Concepts and Methods for Food Environment Research in Low and Middle Income Countries

In its new technical brief, the ANH Academy’s Food Environments Working Group provides an overview of the nutrition field and proposes a conceptual framework in which the food environment acts as an important interface between the wider food system and people’s food acquisition and consumption through continuous and complex interactions between external and personal food environments. The brief concludes with a call for heightened emphasis on food environment research, in part for its strong potential to contribute to existing research at the nexus of sustainable development, food systems, food security, and agriculture, nutrition and health.
