Ninth Newsletter of Nutritional & Health-Related Environmental Studies Section

Welcome to the ninth Newsletter of the Nutritional & Health-Related Environmental Studies Section, in which you find updates on our activities in the second half of 2018. As most of you have seen, our international symposium on the double burden of malnutrition for effective interventions has been a tremendous success - read a summary on page 2 and find all the related material like presentations under the ‘DBMal Symposium 2018’-button! Besides the symposium, we have continued with meetings to support regional projects, designing new research projects, conference presentations and publishing guidance documents, project results and outreach material. We are very proud of having launched the first comprehensive database comprising energy expenditure measurements! Also, read promising news about the application of nuclear techniques in Seychelles and an inspiring article on the future of food systems from the UNSCN Secretariat. Finally, you can test your knowledge about the double burden of malnutrition on the last page! We hope, that you have had a good start in the new year and that you enjoy this new edition of the NAHRES-newsletter!
