The 2016 Global Nutrition Report

The latest edition of the Global Nutrition Report (Summary report) has been released. This acts as report card on the world's nutrition - globally, regionally, and country by country - and on efforts to improve it. It assesses the progress in meeting the Global Nutrition Targets which were set by the World Health Assembly. This years report focused on malnutrition. 

Malnutrition still affects one in three people globally. The key findings are outlined below:

  • Malnutrition creates a cascade of individual and societal challenges- and opportunities
  • The world is off track to reach global targets
  • Nutrition is central to the Sustainable Development Goals
  • Current commitments do not match need
  • SMART commitments and targets matter
  • We must move beyond talk to action
  • Today's data and knowledge are not sufficient to maximize investments
