The resources section includes the following areas:
1️⃣ NDA SFS Toolkit Grants – ICDA member National Dietetic Associations (NDAs) can apply for a Sustainable Food Systems (SFS) Toolkit grant.
2️⃣ NDA SFS Position Papers – Several nutrition and dietetics associations are officially recognising the relevance of Sustainable Food Systems (SFS) and/or sustainable diets to nutrition and dietetics practice.
3️⃣ Existing Resources Database – A selection of reports, articles, and websites that are relevant for different nutrition professionals. You’ll find 2 subsections:
- Hot Topic Clusters in orange ovals on the side bar where where we’ve done the toolkit searching for you.
- Emerging Research Summaries that provide a summary of all the key points of peer-reviewed evidence to provide a quick overview and access for dietitians that do not have access to journals .
4️⃣ Podcasts, Webinars, Workshops – generally these are online sessions that we try to keep updated.
5️⃣ Sustainability Courses – these are usually a more structured format with a syllabus and often provide higher education credit or a certificate. Some are run by a trainer/facilitator but others are self-study. Some charge tuition, others are free. We try to provide you with all that information up front. We’ve organised them into short courses (hours to a few days); longer courses (a week to a few months); and credit courses that generally run a term, but some are self study.
6️⃣ Case Studies – Generally provided by members, the case studies are examples of existing work integrating sustainability and nutrition in practice.
7️⃣ SDG Briefs: Dietitian-Nutritionist Roles – The briefs explore possible roles for Dietitian-Nutritionists (D-N) for UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that are closely related to nutritional goals.
8️⃣ Tools for Practice – The following tools are examples you can use in your practice to promote sustainability to the public and incorporate it in to your practice.
9️⃣ Infographics – These visual can aid D-Ns in communicating Sustainable Food Systems (SFS) to their target audience.
🔟 Glossary – This is a list of key terms and concepts that you are likely to encounter while learning and talking about sustainable food systems.
