About the Global Nutrition Report

The Global Nutrition Report is the world’s foremost account on the status of malnutrition around the world. Each year, it acts as a stock take on the world’s nutrition – globally, regionally, and country by country – and on efforts to improve it. It tracks progress on global nutrition targets, ranging from diet-related non-communicable diseases to maternal, infant and young child nutrition.

2018 Global Nutrition Report

The 2018 Global Nutrition Report convenes existing processes, highlights progress in combating malnutrition, and identifies gaps and proposes ways to fill them. Through this, the report helps to guide action, build accountability and spark increased commitment for further progress towards reducing malnutrition much faster.

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.

Media enquiries
