Nutrition for Growth Summit

Event date: 
01 Dec 2021
Location: 
Tokyo, Japan

The Nutrition for Growth Summit will be an important opportunity to set the world on a path to achieving the SDG targets – in particular, to end malnutrition in all its forms by 2030 and to strengthen the link between diet, food systems and health. The goal is to galvanize commitments from governments, civil society, the private sector, donor agencies and the UN to end malnutrition in all of its forms.

The Vision and Roadmap for the summit include a call to build food systems that “promote healthy diets and nutrition, ensure livelihoods of producers, and are climate-smart.” It notes that coherent government food systems strategies and policies are urgently needed to integrate nutrition, climate and economic objectives.
