On June 8, 2013 the Principals of five UN Agencies with a mandate in nutrition met in London during the Nutrition for Growth high-level event where they endorsed the UN Network for Scaling Up Nutrition. The signatories include José Graziano da Silva, Director-General of the Food and Agriculture Organization, Margaret Chan, Director-General of the World Health Organization, Kanayo Nwanze, President of the International Fund for Agricultural Development, Anthony Lake, Executive Director of the United Nations Children’s Fund and Ertharin Cousin, Executive Director of the World Food Programme.

Together we are stronger and together we can achieve the needed nutritional impacts. It is important that the UN’s significant contribution to nutrition is co-ordinated, coherent, transparent and understood by national government and other SUN networks and nutrition stakeholders.
