IFC Guidelines for Coaching on Food Safety Policy and Regulatory Activities

This publication, “Guidelines: Coaching Food Safety Policy and Regulatory Activities (the Coaching Guidelines), was produced by the IFC Food Safety Advisory with financial support from the Facility for Investment Climate Advisory Services (FIAS). The publication provides guidelines for coaching among IFC staff and consultants involved in activities centered on food safety policies and regulations, including in collaboration with the public sector. While the Guidelines target IFC teams, they may also be a useful tool for food safety policy experts in other organizations in the public or private sector. The objective of the Coaching Guidelines is to ensure that the approach is consistent across IFC engagements in policy and regulatory work in food safety and related areas (for example, food fortification, food loss, and food waste) and that IFC consultants performing such activities understand the principles and approaches followed by IFC.
