In addition to ATNF's in-person consultations and webinars, an on-line consultation tool has been developed. This tool should give all our stakeholders worldwide the chance to share their views on the methodology of the Access to Nutrition Index 2015.
As part of the further development of the Access to Nutrition Index, on 1 July, ATNF moved office to Utrecht, the Netherlands. The office is shared with like-minded organizations including the BoP Innovation Center (BoPInc) and the IDH Sustainable Trade Initiative (IDH).
Consultations are underway with a range of stakeholders to solicit input on how ATNI might improve its methodology for the next Global Index. The focus is on preventing and addressing undernutrition and preventing and addressing obesity and diet-related chronic diseases.
Inge Kauer, Executive Director of the Access to Nutrition Foundation, was invited to speak at the Micronutrient Forum in Addis Ababa on novel approaches to engage private sector in tackling undernutrition.
The Access to Nutrition Index rates food and beverage manufacturers´ nutrition-related policies, practices and disclosures worldwide on a recurring basis.
