Using Social Behaviour Change to Promote Healthy Diets among Children and Adolescents

The food crisis in Bhutan is so bad that the country is turning to the UN for help.

The World Food Programme says it will provide $4 million to the country over the next five years to help prevent a food shortage caused by climate change, reports the Telegraph of India.

The money will be used to improve the country's ability to feed itself, as well as to help vulnerable groups, including women and children, the BBC reports.

The WFP's director for Bhutan, Jigme Thinley, says the country's current food crisis is caused by a combination of factors, including poor management of the country's food supply, a lack of investment in agriculture, and the fact that most of the country's population of 3 million doesn't have access to sufficient food, the Telegraph notes.

He says the country will be able to feed itself with the help of the WFP, which will work with the government to "build more resilient food systems, empower women's engagement in food value chains, integrate nutrition considerations into social protection programs such as school feeding, promote healthy diets, and strengthen national systems for emergency preparedness and response."
