Achieving child stunting targets, SDG 2.2, and ending all forms of malnutrition by 2030 will demand multi-sectoral policy and programmatic actions. It will require bringing together multi- sector interventions targeting mothers and children to address direct and broader underlying factors such as diet, disease prevention, food systems, women’s empowerment, and socioeconomic factors.


Nutrition is a smart investment and interventions are cost-effective for overall development. Yet, current progress on nutrition suggests that the world is off-track to meeting many of its global targets. To effectively translate global nutrition policy to impact nutrition outcomes is critical to understand the opportunities to maintain nutrition momentum on the global policy agenda; and go further to ensure smart policy implementation and resource allocation.  

In this side event, we will explore the role of academia and how innovative research can inform policy implementation to ensue effective application of policy and investments to accelerate nutrition impact. We will hear from experts on policy, research and practice on the practical tools that are needed to guide decision making on nutrition policy implementation and program design.

Organizations involved:

  • UKRI GCRF Action Against Stunting Hub

  • World Vision
