Preparing for Nutrition for Growth summit in France: addressing the root causes of nutrition insecurity

Addressing inequalities and accelerating SDGs

(Session co-organized with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Action Contre la Faim ). After it’s 3rd edition in Tokyo, the 4th edition of the "Nutrition for Growth" Summit, soon to be hosted by France, needs to address global nutritional insecurity. To combat the root causes, stronger renewed political commitment and policies prioritizing peace, access to health, education, climate sensitive food systems are essential and must be secured. To ensure a successful summit, civil society from the most concerned countries and human rights must be placed at the center of the debats.

This round table aims to review the current situation of global nutrition, call for stronger political commitment, and foster an inclusive dialogue in favor of nutrition, giving space to civil society.
