About the Global Nutrition Report
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 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, interactive Country Nutrition Profiles and Nutrition for Growth Commitment Tracker, the GNR sheds light on the state of nutrition. We aim to highlight progress and working solutions to tackle poor diets and malnutrition around the world.
The GNR is leading coordinated efforts to develop an independent and unified accountability framework for nutrition, known as the Nutrition Accountability Framework. This framework will make use of existing mechanisms to strengthen global accountability for nutrition, driving faster and fairer progress to improve nutrition.
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.
2020 Global Nutrition Report
The 2020 Global Nutrition Report brings together the best-available data on malnutrition, proposing a new analysis that goes beyond global and national patterns to reveal significant inequalities within countries and populations. As ever, the 2020 report presents the most comprehensive picture of the state of nutrition at the global, regional, and country level, and tracks progress against global nutrition targets and the commitments made to reach them.
The 2020 report focuses on equity and unpacks the role of inequities in ending malnutrition in all its forms. Through this lens, the report reveals the challenges and opportunities for improving nutrition outcomes by tackling injustices in food and health systems, supported by strong financing and accountability.
Who is involved?
It is researched, analysed and written by the Chairs of an Independent Expert Group (IEG) of world-leading academics, researchers and government representatives. The IEG is consulted on, inputs into and reviews the report. A wider Stakeholder Group – drawn from government, donor, civil society, multilateral and private sector organisations – provides strategic leadership of the report.
The Global Nutrition Report can provide journalists with a wide range of reliable statistics and evidence on malnutrition around the world. We can also arrange interviews with experts across the sector.
