Nutrition, obesity and health: policies and economic research challenges
This paper briefly covers some of the recent issues and policies related to nutrition, obesity and health. Some of the important economic research gaps, needs and challenges are then discussed focusing on few selected themes, namely the data needs, methodological and modelling challenges and policy evaluation issues. These research challenges, if addressed, could further enhance nutrition and obesity economic studies that can be used to design and implement effective policy interventions.
