The Government of Japan will host the next Tokyo Nutrition for Growth Summit (N4G 2020). The summit is an unprecedented opportunity to set the world on a pathway towards achieving the SDG targets – in particular, to end malnutrition in all its forms by 2030 and strengthen the link between diet, food systems and health. Its timing is key, with 5 years to achieve the 2025 World Health Assembly targets, and 10 years to reach the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. At N4G 2020, the government of Japan aims to work with partners to galvanise commitments from governments, civil society, private sector, donor agencies and the UN to end malnutrition in all its forms.
In August 2019, the government of Japan released its N4G 2020 Vision and Roadmap. As part of the Summit, the Government of Japan is calling for commitments to end malnutrition in all its forms under these 5 thematic areas:
- Health: Making nutrition integral to Universal Health Coverage for sustainable development.
- Food: Building food systems that promote safe, healthy diets and nutrition, ensure livelihoods of producers, and are climate-smart.
- Resilience: Addressing malnutrition effectively in fragile and conflict affected contexts.
- Promoting data-driven accountability.
- Securing new investment and driving innovation in nutrition financing.
We will continue to post updates on the 2020 Nutrition for Growth Summit on Nutrition Connect, and the Nutrition for Growth website has now been refreshed.

In 2013, at the first N4G summit in London, 110 stakeholders agreed to prevent at least 20 million children from being stunted and save at least 1.7 million lives by 2020. Donors secured new commitments of over $4 billion to tackle undernutrition, and $19 billion in complementary nutrition-sensitive investments between 2013 and 2020. In 2017, at the Global Nutrition Summit in Milan, governments, civil society organizations, private philanthropies, and the private sector made financial and policy commitments totalling $3.4 billion.
