This report looks at existing conceptual frameworks for food systems with a new lens that links food safety and nutrition and explores how such a perspective can be used to improve policy and programming. This new lens for viewing food safety frameworks was constructed following a review of the main prior conceptual frameworks for food safety and/or food systems/nutrition as well as of other analyses tackling the two topics jointly. It was also informed by an in-depth systematic review of research on linkages between food safety and nutrition as well as a virtual workshop with leading experts in food safety, nutrition, and related fields, including potential users.
