Nutrition Financing Week
24 January 2022 @ 8:00 am - 27 January 2022 @ 10:00 am
The Tokyo “N4G” Summit in December 2021 brought together 45 countries and a dozen donors and partners as well as private sector, civil society groups and academia to deliver policy and financial commitments to end malnutrition. More than US$27 billion was pledged, along with the commitment of delivering more effective and sustainable financing actions for nutrition. To achieve nutrition targets and leave no one behind, countries and the global community will also need to strengthen accountability for nutrition actions and results.
To support stakeholders in translating their commitments to concrete action, the World Bank, the Global Financing Facility for Women, Children and Adolescents (GFF), World Health Organization (WHO), and Results for Development (R4D) are hosting the Nutrition Financing week: a series of virtual N4G side events from January 24-27, 2022.
After a kick-off event that will lay out emerging issues and initiatives on nutrition financing, participants will take a deep dive into key actions and strategies that can be undertaken to strengthen nutrition financing and accountability mechanisms that can maximize results. The series of events include:
- January 24, 8.00-9.30am EST: Webinar 1 – Leading by Example: A Conversation on How to Achieve N4G Financing Goals
