Conclusions • Obesity and NCDs, linked to import and consumption of ultra-processed and processed foods, represent the principal food and nutrition security challenge for OECS, with important socio-economic implications; • Consumer awareness of the food-health connection, disincentivizing unhealthy foods, and incentivizing local production and access to healthy foods (e.g. vegetables, fruits, legumes, fish) could contribute to rebalancing & strengthening of OECS food systems to respond to health and environmental threats; • School settings, policy coordination and cross-sectoral collaboration represent significant leverage points to improve healthy eating and food and nutrition security in OECS; • Enhanced knowledge sharing and skills training in food, nutrition and health systems could contribute to capacity building to protect human and environmental health in OECS
