4. Conclusion and Outlook

In conclusion, a shift towards sustainable and healthy consumption patterns is crucial to achieve sustainable development goals, make food systems more resilient to climate change, increase food security, prevent malnutrition and slow the rise in nutrition-related non-communicable diseases in the WHO Eastern Mediterranean Region. The countries in the region are pursuing this goal with varying degrees of commitment and success. Close cooperation can be of particular help to low-income countries or those afflicted by conflicts and crisis, at the same time as promoting regional trade.
