WHO-FAO: Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2)

The global food system is broken. Millions of people aren’t getting enough to eat, and millions of others are eating too much of the wrong foods. Many families can’t afford enough nutrient rich foods like fresh fruit and vegetables, beans, meat and milk, while foods and drinks high in fat, sugar and salt are cheap and readily available. Undernutrition and overweight are now problems affecting people within the same communities.

Country leaders from around the world gather at the Second International Conference on Nutrition in Rome in November 2014 to commit to action needed to fix the global food system.
