What is Nutrition for Growth?
Everyone, everywhere needs good nutrition to live a healthy, productive life.
Nutrition for Growth (N4G) is a historic opportunity to transform the way the world tackles malnutrition by uniting financial commitments, policy solutions, knowledge and resources from country governments, donors and philanthropies, businesses, NGOs and beyond. Partners will convene at the Tokyo N4G Summit in 2021 to change the world’s current nutrition trajectory by:
- Adopting stronger, evidence-based nutrition policies at global, regional, and country levels
- Pledging to increase financing for proven nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive interventions
- Committing to align and harmonize actions across sectors and stakeholders
Together, we can ensure individuals and families have the nutrition they need to live healthy and productive lives and that countries have the human capital they need to fuel health, social, and economic development in the final decade of the SDGs.
