Key facts to know:
- Nutrition for Growth is led by a partnership between the United Kingdom, Brazil and Japan governments and championed by leading philanthropic foundations and civil society organizations.
- The first Nutrition for Growth summit was held in London in 2013 where a Global Nutrition for Growth Compact was endorsed by 100 stakeholders and new commitments in the order of over $4 billion for nutrition-specific projects, and $19 billion in nutrition-sensitive projects, was pledged.
- The communique from the Brazil-led 2016 N4G event highlighted the need for a global movement in 2017 to increase global attention to the nutrition challenge, and to build global momentum for a major pledging moment.
Under the umbrella of the UN Decade of Action on Nutrition, Nutrition for Growth 2017 encompassed a series of events that brought different actors together to set out specific steps to help end malnutrition in all its forms by 2030. The goal was to secure new financial and political commitments from governments, donors, civil society, UN and business, and re-energize political momentum and global focus on nutrition. Join us in telling world leaders to make bold commitments on nutrition so that women, children and entire communities can survive and thrive. Details of the plans for Nutrition for Growth in 2020 are forthcoming.
