This project supports Development Initiatives in developing and publishing the 2018 Global Nutrition Report. The Global Nutrition Report is the leading independent accountability mechanism for nutrition. Established in 2013 as an outcome of the Nutrition for Growth (N4G) Global Compact, the Report seeks to increase accountability for greater action to end malnutrition with a focus on curating high quality, comprehensive and credible data on nutrition outcomes and its determinants; and accounting for stakeholder commitments, policies and interventions designed to improve nutrition and financing for nutrition. Data produced by the Report exposes barriers faced by nutrition stakeholders, and highlights potential for action and advocacy for improved nutrition. The Report also holds donors, governments and private sector stakeholders accountable to their policy and financial commitments pledged through Nutrition for Growth and tracks donor and country annual spending towards nutrition. The 2018 Report focuses on success stories in nutrition to encourage nutrition stakeholders to take action. Specifically, the Report aims to: (1) feature country actions addressing malnutrition burdens; (2) validate new data indicators and measures; (3) showcase private sector workforce commitments made through Nutrition for Growth, and (4) feature thematic chapters on diet, food environments and food systems, and country level implementation of interventions and policies to address the double burden of malnutrition.
