The Compendium of Actions for Nutrition (CAN), developed by the UN Network for SUN/REACH Secretariat in consultation with the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), UNICEF, the World Food Programme, WHO, and academic experts, is a practical resource that compiles relevant nutrition actions. The compendium describes the broad spectrum of actions—from breastfeeding and fortification to handwashing, latrine construction, and insect production—that can contribute to making a difference for people’s nutrition.
