National Strategic Review of Food Security and Nutrition in Iraq
MetadataShow full item record
The Government of Iraq has committed to the internationally agreed Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including SDG 2 which aims to “end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture". The National Strategic Review of Food Security and Nutrition was undertaken under the leadership of Dr. Mehdi Al-Alak, Secretary General of the Iraq Council of Ministers, to formulate a set of policies, institutional changes and investments to achieve SDG 2. An Advisory Committee comprising relevant government institutions helped guide the process and review the various proposed actions. Work was coordinated with the efforts of the National Food Security Committee, which was set up in February 2017, under the guidance of the Iraq Minister of Agriculture. The World Food Programme (WFP) provided help and support throughout the strategy formulation process.
