The Global Nutrition Report (GNR) is the only independent and comprehensive annual review of the state of the world’s nutrition. It is a multipartner initiative that holds a mirror up to successes and failures at meeting intergovernmental nutrition targets. It documents progress on commitments made on the global stage, and it recommends actions to accelerate that progress.
The Global Nutrition Report
“Many nations are on course to meet the 2025 global nutrition targets. For example, 99 countries have made progress toward decreasing stunting, which blights the lives of more than 150 million children around the world. The Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Movement has united governments, civil society, the private sector, and international organizations in making nutrition a priority—targeting investments, tailoring interventions, and tracking our progress. We will continue working together in common cause and with a shared commitment to reach every child.”
Anthony Lake, Executive Director of UNICEF and Chair of the SUN Movement Lead Group

“The 2016 Global Nutrition Report is an authoritative source of action-oriented nutrition knowledge that transcends politics and guides the SUN Movement in its quest to make nutrition a priority. This report continues to push the boundaries beyond previous editions—with an optimistic message that when we work together, our collective impact can achieve the changes needed to sustainably transform lives, communities, and the future. ”
Tom Arnold, SUN Movement Coordinator ad interm and Gerda Verburg, forthcoming SUN Movement Coordinator
The Global Nutrition Report was first launched in 2014 in response to the 2013 Nutrition for Growth Global Compact commitment to produce ‘an authoritative annual global report on nutrition’. The Global Nutrition Report is supported by a wide-ranging group of stakeholders and delivered by an Independent Group of Experts in partnership with a large number of external contributors. The report tracks progress against the World Health Assembly global nutrition targets as well as a wealth of other nutrition indicators in country-by-country profiles. The report also monitors the specific Nutrition for Growth (N4G) commitments made in London in June 2013.
