The United Nations Decade of Action on Nutrition 2016-2025 (the Nutrition Decade; http://www.un.org/nutrition)
aims to trigger intensified action to end hunger and eradicate all forms of malnutrition worldwide, and ensure
universal access to healthier and more sustainable diets for all people, whoever they are and wherever they live.
Within the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Nutrition Decade presents a unique
opportunity for all countries and stakeholders to align activities around a shared framework and timeline, and to
increase the visibility, coordination, and effectiveness of nutrition actions worldwide. Achieving and sustaining
on-the-ground reductions in malnutrition will require strong commitment from many people and organizations
including policy-makers and governments, implementing agencies and teams, civil society groups, research
institutions, businesses and communities. Such commitment does not come easily: it must be created, sustained
and strengthened over time. This policy brief sets out factors that drive commitment for nutrition, and is intended
to guide actions that will increase commitment by all stakeholders.
