Nutrition in FAO
  • Food Consumption Surveys
  • Nutrient Requirements (incl energy)
  • Nutrition Country Profiles
  • Total Diet Studies
  • Food Systems Analysis
  • Dietary Pattern Analysis
  • Nutrients in agricultural production (vit A, lysine per hectare; DHA availability)
  • Nutritional Epidemiology
  • FIVIMS, number of hungry people

Strength in time series

suggestions
Suggestions
  • Selected ESS staff should get training on food composition because
    • they are in contact with countries on these issues
    • they compile compositional data for SUAs
    • this would enhance communication between ESS and AGN
  • Training module should be developed for food composition
  • To enhance data quality, to enhance collaboration on issues mentioned earlier and work to be carried out by consultants under AGN responsibility but supported by SO H
  • Systematic error reporting mechanisms (e.g., different results for undernourishment between AGN and ESS using the same data, Cape Verde)

  • INFOODS link
  • Data suppliers and data users
  • International standards for compositional data (units, nutrient expressions)
  • All energy-yielding components
  • Some micronutrients
  • Waste – household vs edible portion
  • Other terminology (DEC, DES)
  • Compositional databases = module in FAOSTAT
  • Commodity tree updates (generic and country-specific)
  • International standards for food classification/naming (Codex, Food Comp...)
  • Collaboration in related activities, e.g., ICDAM, IFDC

FAOSTAT is/should be the most important output of FAO

Nutrition community uses (used) FAOSTAT data extensively

With a common platform for database development, several nutrition-related databases could be usefully linked

Time series is crucial
