Policy Brief: Healthy Diets for all in Jordan
The United Nations (UN) is holding a Global Food System Summit in New York in September 2021. In preparation for the Food Summit, national dialogues were held across the world, including in Jordan, presenting a unique opportunity for national actors to engage in exchanging views and perspectives on how food systems should be transformed. Building on these national dialogues, at the Food Summit, participating States will make recommendations on how national authorities, civil societies, social movements, chefs, physicians, nutritionists, agronomists, companies, and people around the country could contribute to better design food systems that respond to people’s needs. Fiscal policies, food production, marketing and labelling legislations, informational and educational activities, women and youth empowerment measures to incentivise healthy diets represent policy proposals that should guide the transformation of food systems and contribute to accelerating progress towards the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
