UNSCN Discussion Paper – Global Governance for Nutrition and the role of UNSCN

  |   SUN UN Network

In March 2017, the United Nations Standing Committee on Nutrition (UNSCN) published a GovernPaper-EN-WEB-_001paper to describe the current nutrition architecture and provides a detailed overview of the main nutrition actors and their mandate. The UNSCN assesses the state of play in the global nutrition landscape and the governance arrangements therein. The report aims to:

  • Describe the public and private actors as well as the networks of actors who impact nutrition agendas globally, and
  • Provide recommendations regarding the role of UNSCN within a global governance system, with an emphasis on UN system actors.
