This package helps global development partners working in low- and middle-income countries collect data that assesses the food environment. It includes documentation of a multi-year pilot study in Liberia, Honduras, Nigeria, and Timor-Leste that evaluated seven food environment assessments for their feasibility and acceptability. The related data collection tools are intended to be used by practitioners to inform the design and implementation of market-based interventions within food systems to support healthy diets.
