Food and Nutrition Security

The Food and Nutrition Security Programme undertakes studies/research, builds capacity for policy makers and programme experts across sectors and supports implementation. The goal of the Programme is to reduce hunger and malnutrition of the vulnerable populations focusing on evidence based policies and programmes. To enhance and sustain the nutrition focused momentum within CAADP over the next decade, the food and nutrition programme seeks to build on and scale up programme activities around the following broad thematic areas, namely maternal and child nutrition, food fortification and bio-fortification, dietary diversity and home grown school feeding.
