Food-Based Dietary Guidelines (FBDGs): Their Future
Malaysian Journal of Nutrition
Vol. 22, Supplement, 2016


The promulgation of the joint WHO-FAO Cyprus Declaration in 1995, established the prin-ciples and procedures for countries to develop their customised Food-Based Dietary Guide-lines (FBDGs). One of the earliest acculturations of the FBDGs was undertaken by WHO for the Western Pacific region. This process has been continued for the Southeast Asian re gion, where revisions have now been made to reflect its changing health patterns and food systems. The greatest challenge to FBDG revision is how climate change is and will affect food supply and health. The world has become more populous, the risks to food insecurity have escalated with growing inequity, conflict and mass migration are rife, trading arrange-ments have become fragile, and climate change is proceeding apace. The future depends on sustainable ecosystems, the food and water they provide and us as ecological beings.

Key words: Food-Based Dietary Guidelines, Southeast Asia, sustainable ecosystems
