Nutrition Manual for Humanitarian Action - ref. 0820

Author: Alain Mourey

This manual is an important tool for all humanitarian workers involved in the field of nutrition.

In addition to presenting an in-depth explanation of human nutrition, nutrition crisis and nutritional programmes within humanitarian intervention, the manual highlights the importance of maintaining a better understanding of the broader impact of war on all aspects of daily life.

It argues that food is not just a means for survival but that it is a basic right for those caught up in the conflict, as defined in international humanitarian law.
