Nutrition Security Policy
Beyond the conceptual framework of undernutrition, used as a reference for many years in Action Against Hunger policy and strategy documents, this policy is developed to provide a comprehensive framework for mobilization and action of Action Against Hunger and its partners in our fight against undernutrition.
Its aims are:
• To highlight the issues and challenges, and define concepts around nutrition security
• To define the organization’s vision and positioning for a systematic nutrition security approach
• To provide overall principles, ambitions and commitments at institutional, strategic and programmatic levels to apply this vision
It forms the basis for a common multisectoral understanding of the global issue of undernutrition and how Action Against Hunger commits to respond to it in a coherent, evidence based and holistic way. It does not replace but complements existing institutional documents, providing an overarching policy document for the organisation’s fight against undernutrition.
