How can public and private sector links be more effective to improve diets? A new policy brief from the Global Panel on Agriculture and Food Systems for Nutrition examines how governments and other stakeholders can incentivize the private sector to improve the food environment and enable better dietary choices. The brief sets out six priorities for action: (1) encouraging investments in food sector small and medium-sized enterprises, (2) promoting consumer demand for healthy diets, (3) incentivizing appropriate action in the private sector, (4) managing risks, (5) building trust, (6) and providing reliable and supportive infrastructure.
