The Global Nutrition Report (GNR) is the world’s leading independent assessment of the state of global nutrition. We provide the best available data, in-depth analysis and expert opinion rooted in evidence to help drive action on nutrition where it is urgently needed.
A multi-stakeholder initiative comprised of global institutions, the GNR is led by experts in the field of nutrition. The GNR was established in 2014 following the first Nutrition for Growth summit, as an accountability mechanism to track progress against global nutrition targets and the commitments made to reach them.
Through a comprehensive report, the Nutrition Accountability Framework, interactive Country Nutrition Profiles and Nutrition for Growth Commitment Tracking, the GNR sheds light on the burden of malnutrition and highlights progress and working solutions to tackle malnutrition around the world.
We are a unifying voice, designed for and with the communities who can act. By informing the nutrition debate, we inspire action to create a world free from malnutrition in all its forms.
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.
Our goal: To inform, shape and inspire action with data and evidence on policy, practice and financing which result in greater accountability and progress in tackling poor diets and malnutrition globally.
The Global Nutrition Report is a multi-stakeholder initiative, consisting of a Stakeholder Group, Independent Expert Group and Report Secretariat.
The Charter 2030 marks an exciting new phase in the GNR's evolution. It clarifies our long-term value add, strategic vision, operational approach and governance arrangements to 2030.
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 Host 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.
In July 2021, the Stakeholder Group (SG) formally commissioned a mid-term review of the GNR programme on behalf of the GNR donor group (DG) . The mid-term review covered the GNR programme from 2018 to 2021 and focused on assessing how the process of the GNR influences the relevance, coherence and effectiveness of the GNR.
