The InterAcademy Partnership (IAP) sought to capitalise on its membership of over 130 academies of science and medicine to develop a systematic process to frame and synthesize available scientific evidence at national, regional and global levels to support the transformation of food systems to deliver sustainable, nutritious diets. Four parallel working groups were established following nominations of experts across scientific disciplines by the regional networks of science academies: the Network of African Science Academies (NASAC); the Association of Academies and Societies of Sciences in Asia (AASSA); the Inter-American Network of Academies of Science (IANAS); and the European Academies’ Science Advisory Council (EASAC). The analysis was bottom-up, with synthesis to develop common themes and recommendations, proposing an integrated, multidisciplinary approach that considers food and nutrition security and agriculture (FNSA).
