Abstract
To support governments as they develop national food and nutrition plans and targets, World Cancer Research Fund International and NCD Alliance have produced a new policy brief.  The brief translates the recommendations of the Framework for Action (an outcome document of the Second International Conference on Nutrition, ICN2) into financial and political commitments that are SMART: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Time-bound. As far as possible, also identified are so-called ‘double-duty actions’ which have the potential to prevent both undernutrition and overweight & obesity.
