Promoting healthy food environments in the SDGs

29th June 2017

Bold actions, bold outcomes: protecting and promoting healthy food environments in the SDGs

This event, on the margins of the UN High-level Political Forum (HLPF), will explore policies to prevent obesity, including regulatory and scale measures, as part of a broader strategy to address diet-related NCDs and to achieve a number of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The 2017 HLPF provides an important backdrop for this discussion, as the goals to be reviewed, SDGs 1, 2, 3, 5, 9, and 14, demonstrate how integrated action on food and nutrition can result in progress across the SDGs.
