The State of Food and Agriculture 2013: Food Systems for Better Nutrition

Paperback / softback
Malnutrition--in the form of undernutrition, micronutrient deficiencies, and overweight and obesity--imposes unacceptably high economic and social costs on countries at all income levels. The causes of malnutrition are complex, yet all forms of malnutrition share one common feature: nutritionally inappropriate diets. The State of Food and Agriculture 2013 makes the case that healthy diets and good nutrition begin with food and agriculture.
