Please join us for an evening of dynamic conversation on Tuesday 22 September as we present new evidence, progress, and address interventions to globally sustainable, nutrition–led policies, with a reception to follow.

NEW findings and recommendations to be introduced include: 

  • The critical relationship between climate change and nutrition
  • Focus on the roles of business and how it can play a pivotal role
  • Fresh data covering all forms of malnutrition – from under nutrition in young children to nutrition-related noncommunicable diseases in adults, and from stunting to obesity

The Global Nutrition Report is the first comprehensive summary and scorecard on both global and country level progress on all forms of nutrition for 193 countries. The 2015 edition will build and reflect on new opportunities, actions, progress, accountability, and data for nutrition, with the aim to build greater commitment to improved nutrition in all countries.

This event is by invitation only.
