ATNI at the Tokyo Nutrition for Growth Summit 202124 November 2021
2021 is the Nutrition Year of Action, with two major summits taking place this year: the UN Food Systems Summit, which took place in September, and the Tokyo Nutrition for Growth (N4G) Summit, which will take place on December 7-8, 2021.
N4G represents a unique opportunity to mobilize progress towards better nutrition across all industries and sectors, including the private sector. The Summit seeks to drive commitments for building stronger, evidence-based nutrition policies, increasing finance for nutrition, and aligning actions across sectors and stakeholders, with particular attention to three core areas and two cross-cutting themes:
- Health: Making nutrition integral to Universal Health Coverage UHC
- Food: Building food systems that promote healthy diets and nutrition
- Resilience: Addressing malnutrition effectively in fragile and conflict-affected contexts
Cross-cutting areas: Promoting data-driven accountability and securing new investment and driving innovation in nutrition financing
Many of the Summit’s themes align with Access to Nutrition Initiative’s (ATNI) core mission – to drive change through delivering accountability tools that track the food industry’s attempts to tackle malnutrition at the local and global levels.
