2021 Nutrition for Growth Summit


Nutrition for Growth (N4G) Summit

Nutrition for Growth (N4G) Summit

What is Nutrition for Growth?

Everyone, everywhere needs good nutrition to live a healthy, productive life.

Nutrition for Growth (N4G) is a global effort to bring together country governments, donors and philanthropies, businesses, NGOs and beyond. It is also the culmination of the Nutrition for Growth Year of Action to accelerate progress on malnutrition, that began with a successful virtual launch hosted by the Governments of Canada and Bangladesh in December 2020 and in which GAIN took part. 

N4G will also continue the conversations and accelerate action for progress on nutrition built from the United Nations Food Systems Summit. N4G is also a pledging moment and has the potential to transform the way the world tackles the global challenge of malnutrition. 

It is time for partners to unlock the power of good nutrition by:

  • Adopting stronger, evidence-based nutrition policies at global, regional, and country levels
  • Pledging to increase financing for proven nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive interventions
  • Committing to align and harmonize actions across sectors and stakeholders

GAIN joins the nutrition community and its stakeholders so that together at N4G we can ensure individuals and families have the nutrition they need to live healthy and productive lives and that countries have the human capital they need to fuel health, social, and economic development in the final decade of the SDGs! We welcome you to have a full view in a snapshot of all the activities GAIN will be involved in hereunder. 

Do join us!
