Healthy diets are a key outcome of sustainable food systems. The aspect of health is the health of people and the planet. This includes malnutrition in all forms, namely undernutrition (wasting, stunting, underweight), inadequate vitamins or minerals, overweight, obesity, and resulting diet-related noncommunicable diseases (NCDs). It also includes reducing food loss nas waste, to increase efficiency and reduce greenhouse emission.
Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives, Thailand together with the Thai Health Promotion Foundation National and World Vegetable Center are in line to promote healthy diets and a healthy planet. This dialogue is one among other activities to celebrate The International Year of Fruits and Vegetables 2021. In order to understand how food system operate and how intervention is needed, we select vegetable as a case study to explore how new policy can be beneficial for national food system. We will identify how to collaborate and integrate works between agriculture, food and health of the people and the planet.
The objectives of this dialogue are:
- to inform the urgency and challenges to transform national food system by both producer and consumer.
- to raise awareness for public participation in transforming national food system.
- to identify and coordinate future policies and action with relevant organization nationally and internationally.
