International short course: Food systems for healthy and sustainable diets

The course is job-oriented and the training approach is interactive, experience as well as evidence-based: it provides the participants with the possibility to learn from expert facilitators as well as from each other. Transfer of knowledge goes hand in hand with case studies, working groups, etc. A mix of participants with different backgrounds, yet common interests, will provide a good basis for the exchange of experiences.

The course focus on options available within food systems to deliver high-quality diets to different population groups. The course addresses the following topics:
- Principles and indicators of a food system, and healthy diets in different population groups and how are they related;
- linkages between national, regional and global food systems;
- food system public and private stakeholders and their interaction, partnerships and alliances;
- policy issues and actions relevant to sustainable food systems transformations for healthy diets;
- designing programs implementing priority actions based on the local context, balancing health with social, ecological and economic sustainability outcomes;
- monitoring and evaluation food system changes and results;

For this course are the following fellowships available: NFP (KOP) and MENA (MSP). The fellowships covers the following costs: participation fee, the hotel stay, the flights to and from the venue, food and insurance.

You have at least three years of professional experience related to the theme of the course, or you do a related MSc in the area of nutrition, health, agriculture.
