2018 Global Nutrition Report


The 2018 Global Nutrition Report shares insights into the current state of global nutrition, highlighting the unacceptably high burden of malnutrition in the world. It identifies areas where progress has been made in recent years but argues that it is too slow and too inconsistent. It puts forward five critical steps that are needed to speed up progress to end malnutrition in all its forms:

  1.  Break down silos between malnutrition in all its forms.

  2. Prioritise and invest in the data needed and capacity to use it.

  3. Scale up financing for nutrition – diversify and innovate to build on past progress.

  4. Galvanise action on healthy diets – engage across countries to address this universal problem.

  5.  Make and deliver better commitments to end malnutrition in all its forms – an ambitious, transformative approach will be required to meet global nutrition targets.
