The Global Nutrition Report (GNR) was born out of the first Nutrition for Growth (N4G) Summit. Our tools and data inform, shape and inspire action through evidence and greater accountability on nutrition policy, practice and financing to advance progress in tackling poor diets and malnutrition globally.
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.
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’s N4G Commitment Tracker, which will remain available until 2022. New commitments made in 2021 and later will be recorded, tracked and publicly shared through the GNR’s Nutrition Accountability Framework (NAF), which monitors all nutrition commitments, including N4G commitments.
With its N4G Commitment Tracker, interactive Country Nutrition Profiles, the NAF Platform and the 2021 Global Nutrition Report: The state of global nutrition, the GNR brings together the latest data on diet, the burden of malnutrition, nutrition strategies and financing, and environmental impacts to comprehensively highlight progress and working solutions to tackle poor diets and malnutrition around the world.
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 NAF, 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's N4G Commitment Tracker
The 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 NAF 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.
