The Advisory Group of IDECG recommended that select parts of the 1985 FAO/WHO/UNU Report on energy and protein requirements be reviewed for possible revision and updating. The specific questions posed were:
1. Do the 1985 recommendations need to be revised: what are the main arguments for or against a revision ?
2. What would your recommendations be at this point in time?
3. What additional work would need to be done to resolve problems that persist in this area?
