Nutrition for Growth Year of Action: Nine SMART breastfeeding pledges
Nine SMART breastfeeding pledges
HighlightsThe Nutrition for Growth (N4G) Year of Action is a year-long roadmap of key events throughout 2021, culminating in the UN FSS in September and the Tokyo N4G Summit. More than ever, this year requires urgent action to curb the wave of global malnutrition arising from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, which is taking the greatest toll on the most vulnerable communities. Governments, donors, civil society, and the private sector all have an opportunity to step up and make SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound) nutrition-inclusive commitments to tackle the global malnutrition crisis. There are two key commitment-making opportunities this year: the United Nations Food Systems Summit in September and the Tokyo N4G Summit hosted by the Government of Japan in December 2021.
