Examines major governmental, bilateral, and multilateral agency food and nutrition policies and programs that directly or indirectly affect 1) the availability and quality of food and 2) the health and nutrition of populations.

After completion of this course, students will be able to: 1) identify food and nutrition problems amenable to policy intervention; 2) define criteria of effective food or nutrition policies; and 3) critique a specific food and/or nutrition policy with respect to its evidence-base, adequacy of implementation, nutritional impact and forces which hinder or help the implementation of the specific policy.
