The Global Nutrition Report was conceived following the first Nutrition for Growth Initiative Summit (N4G) in 2013 as a mechanism for tracking the commitments made by 100 stakeholders spanning governments, aid donors, civil society, the UN and businesses. The following year, the first of these annual reports was published.
Today, the Global Nutrition Report is the world’s leading independent assessment of the state of global nutrition. It is data-led and produced each year to cast a light on where progress has been made and identify where challenges remain. The report aims to inspire governments, civil society and private stakeholders to act to end malnutrition in all its forms. It also plays the important role of helping hold stakeholders to account on the commitments they have made towards tackling malnutrition.
Our vision: A world free from malnutrition in all its forms.
Our mission: The Global Nutrition Report drives greater action to end malnutrition in all its forms.
The Global Nutrition Report is a multi-stakeholder initiative, consisting of a Stakeholder Group, Independent Expert Group and Report Secretariat.
The Stakeholder Group guides the commissioning and development of the Global Nutrition Report. This group comprises high-level members of government, donor organisations, civil society, multilateral organisations and the business sector. The Stakeholder Group also provides strategic leadership and builds support for the Global Nutrition Report.
Independent Expert Group
Selected from nominations submitted to the Stakeholder Group, the Independent Expert Group is responsible for the Global Nutrition Report’s data, analysis and conclusions, and is accountable for the quality and independence of its content.
The Report Secretariat supports the Independent Expert Group in developing the report, through data analysis, research and coordination functions. It also leads the production, communication and dissemination of the report. Development Initiatives was awarded this role for 2018 to 2021.
