Food System Transformative Integrated Policy: A Comprehensive Food Systems Diagnostic Approach to Inform Policymaking Toward Sustainable Healthy Diets for All

  • June 2021
  • Briefing Papers

The Food System Transformative Integrated Policy (FS-TIP) initiative supports governments that demonstrate robust integrative leadership and capacity for the development and implementation of transformative and integrated food systems policies—transformative in that they are sufficiently ambitious to deliver sustainable and healthy diets for all and integrated in that they are addressing the linkages and trade-offs in setting policies from field to fork. FS-TIP has a long-term, intergenerational perspective that leverages the momentum of the UN Food Systems Summit 2021 to build a lasting platform for transformation, policy development, capacity building, innovation, and investment. The initiative consists of three phases. The first phase which runs from April 2021 to the end of 2021—underway in Ghana, Rwanda, and Malawi focuses on conducting a landscaping and diagnostic analysis of the current state of each country’s food systems, identifying key stakeholders, policy gaps, and opportunities. Subsequent phases will focus on integrated policy development and implementation.

This brief introduces the objectives of the FS-TIP initiative and shares its unique approach to food systems diagnostics, which is free to be leveraged by all food system stakeholders who want to conduct a similar diagnostic.
