This report presents the latest updates on the food security and nutrition situation around the world, including updated estimates on the cost and affordability of a healthy diet. It takes a deep dive into “repurposing food and agricultural policy support to making healthy diets more affordable” through reducing the cost of nutritious foods relative to other foods and people’s income, which, in turn, helps countries make more efficient and effective use of – in many cases – limited public resources. A key recommendation of this report is that governments start rethinking how they can reallocate their existing public budgets to make them more cost-effective and efficient in reducing the cost of nutritious foods and increasing the availability and affordability of healthy diets, with sustainability and leaving no one behind.
