The Global Nutrition Report (GNR) has been bringing together and analysing the best available data on nutrition since 2014. We were born out of the first Nutrition for Growth (N4G) Summit and continue to provide the evidence needed to drive action to end malnutrition in all its forms.

The N4G Commitment Tracker provides the latest data on progress towards N4G commitments. You can search the interactive tracker to find out who is making progress towards commitments – and where more action is needed. This makes it an important resource for anyone who needs evidence to shape stronger commitments on nutrition.
The 2020 Global Nutrition Report called for greater investments in nutrition, especially in the communities most affected by malnutrition. It urged governments, businesses and civil society to leverage key moments to renew and expand nutrition commitments and strengthen accountability.
Commitments made in previous N4G summits are ending. The world is now gearing up for a year of commitments on food and nutrition in 2021. To improve nutrition outcomes in the future, we need to take stock of progress made towards commitments to date. Past N4G commitments made at the 2013 and 2017 summits will continue to be recorded and tracked through the GNR N4G Commitment Tracker. New commitments made in 2021 and later will be recorded, tracked and publicly shared through the GNR’s Nutrition Accountability Framework to monitor all nutrition commitments, including N4G commitments.
Together the Country Nutrition Profiles, which bring together the best available data on nutrition and the NAF Platform, the GNR equips the world with the evidence needed to drive faster and fairer progress to end malnutrition in all its forms.
In December 2020, the governments of Canada and Bangladesh, in partnership with the government of Japan, hosted a virtual event to launch a ‘Nutrition for Growth (N4G) Year of Action’ and mobilise actors to register N4G commitments. The event showcased new policy and financing commitments for nutrition from a range of stakeholders and formally kicked off the Year of Action.
To facilitate the commitment registration process for the Year of Action, the GNR has developed the Nutrition Accountability Framework, which includes a commitment registration platform and resources, which have been endorsed by the government of Japan and are in alignment with the N4G Commitment-Making Guide, the N4G Vision and Roadmap and the GNR N4G Commitment Tracker
The Nutrition Accountability Framework (NAF) creates the world’s first independent and comprehensive platform for registering SMART nutrition commitments and monitoring nutrition action. It helps inform, shape and inspire strong commitments for nutrition through comprehensive methods for qualifying, classifying and reporting on nutrition action, and monitoring how action translates to impact. This is facilitated through the NAF enabling transparent and accessible sharing of data, evidence and best practice.
Stakeholders are encouraged to register commitments on the Nutrition Accountability Framework platform. After submitting your commitment, you will be given the opportunity to revise or refine it with support from a member of the Independent Expert Group. No commitments will be made public at this stage and we will alert you before they are made publicly available.
