Ending Malnutrition for All: Enhancing Progress for achieving SDG2 by a re-set and re-affirmation of the Global Nutrition Targets

From 9:15 to 9:30 EDT

IRC HQ at 122 E 42nd St, New York

HLPF Event

Please join the Government of France, the World Health Organization, International Rescue Committee, the Wasting Advocacy Coalition, Save the Children UK, Hellen Keller International, 1,000 Days and World Vision International for this special side event on the margins of the High Level Political Forum.

The world faces a hunger and nutrition crisis. Over 780 million people face chronic hunger, 45 million children suffer from acute malnutrition, and 42 million people are on the brink of famine. The global nutrition targets set for 2025 have catalyzed action, but due to conflict, climate change, and socioeconomic shocks, these targets will not be met. Join us to discuss strategies to progress towards ending malnutrition, including extending the global nutrition targets, renewing the Decade of Action on Nutrition, expanding services through Community Health Workers, and amplifying the priorities of local, national and global partners ahead of the Paris Nutrition for Growth Summit.
