The CFS Voluntary Guidelines On Food Systems and Nutrition (VGFSyN)

The VGFSyN present a comprehensive, systemic, and science and evidence-based approach to achieving healthy diets through sustainable food systems. The VGFSyN are voluntary and non-binding, and are meant to provide guidance to governments and relevant stakeholders when designing context-specific food policies.

VGFSyN are structured in seven focus areas:

i) transparent, democratic and accountable governance;

ii) sustainable food supply chains to achieve healthy diets in the context of economic, social and environmental sustainability, and climate change;

iii) Equal and equitable access to healthy diets through sustainable food systems;

iv) food safety across sustainable food systems;

v) people-centered nutrition knowledge, education and information;

vi) gender equality and women’s empowerment across food systems; and

vii) resilient food systems in humanitarian contexts.
