Ending malnutrition in all its forms by 2030 requires that the world prioritize nutrition in food systems, health systems, and the needs of the most vulnerable.
Governments, business, multilateral organizations, donors and other development partners are encouraged to make financial, policy, programmatic, or impact commitments covering one or more of the 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 to promote safe, sustainable, and healthy foods to support people and planet.
Effectively addressing malnutrition in fragile and conflict affected contexts, supporting resiliency.
To facilitate the commitment registration process for the Year of Action, the Global Nutrition Report has developed the following two documents, which have been endorsed by the government of Japan and are in alignment with the N4G Commitment-Making Guide, the N4G Vision and Roadmap and the GNR N4G Commitment Tracker
- N4G Commitment Registration Guide
A step-by-step guide to help you register your commitments. The guide highlights what you need to know before making a commitment, including the N4G Principles of Engagement, thematic areas and commitment types; describes the form and provides concrete examples of registered commitments; explains how to formulate SMART commitments; and takes you through the registration process and what to expect after registering your commitment(s).
- N4G Commitment Registration Form
A form to register the concrete action(s) that you are committing to undertake to improve nutrition. The completion of the form is required in order to register your commitment(s). The form allows each commitment to be registered separately but within the same document.
Please be aware that, as described in the Commitment registration guide, to qualify for registration, each commitment must:
- Be SMART (completion of the form enables this)
- Align with national priorities
- Align with the N4G Principles for Engagement
- Progress towards the commitment will be reported annually to the GNR.
We are confident that the guide and form will provide the required support to stakeholders to enable them to make SMART commitments at the springboard meeting. We anticipate that these two documents will be refined as we enter the Year of Action, based on feedback received and resources secured.
You can email us at N4G@globalnutritionreport.org with any questions you may have about the commitment registration process.
