Background

In November 2014, at the Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2), Member States committed to eliminate malnutrition in all its forms and articulated a common vision for global action.

In September 2015, Member States placed high priority on addressing malnutrition by committing, under Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 2 to “End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture”.[1]and under SDG 3 to improve health and reduce NCD burden.

In April 2016, the UN General Assembly, through its Resolution 70/259[2], reinforced the ICN2 call for action by endorsing the ICN2 outcomes and proclaiming 2016 to 2025 the United Nations Decade of Action on Nutrition[3], providing a unique opportunity for governments, academia, civils society and other stakeholders to work together for the coming ten years toward eradication and prevention of all forms of malnutrition in their countries.

In 2017, the Sustainable Food System For Healthy Diets Symposium in Budapest recommended the Central Asia and Caucasus to develop a regional mechanism to enhance the capacity of key actors engaged in nutrition.

In July 2018, an ECOSOC resolution called the UN Task Force and its members to strengthen its capacity to provide technical and policy advice to Governments in order to implement Multisectoral strategies and enhance multi-stakeholder action.[4]
