The Tokyo Nutrition for Growth (N4G) Summit 2020 provides a historic opportunity to transform the way the world tackles the global challenge of malnutrition.
The Summit comes at a critical time, midway through the United Nations (UN) Decade of Action on Nutrition, with only five years left to achieve the World Health Assembly (WHA) targets on maternal, infant and young child nutrition, and 10 years to reach the SDGs.
The Summit will be held in December 2020 under the auspices of the government of Japan. The Summit will be preceded by a “springboard” moment, the N4G Kick-Off Event at Goalkeepers Tokyo held on the eve of the opening ceremony of the Olympics on 23 July 2020. These events will continue the N4G legacy and signal the beginning of a new race toward a healthier, better-nourished future—a race toward a world in which all people, including the most vulnerable, have access to safe, affordable, and nutritious food by 2030.
Commitment-making is at the heart of the Summit.
As established in the vision for the Summit, governments, business, multilaterals, donors, and other development partners are encouraged to make data-driven financial, policy, programmatic, or impact commitments covering one or more of these three focus areas identified by the government of Japan as critical to achieving the global targets and ending malnutrition in all its forms:
Integrating nutrition into Universal Health Coverage (UHC).
Transforming the food system, so it promotes safe, sustainable, and healthy foods to support people and planet.
Effectively addressing malnutrition in fragile and conflict-affected contexts, supporting resiliency.
Resources are available for all stakeholders to play their part in creating a successful N4G Summit in 2020.
