One in three people worldwide suffer from malnutrition. In stark contrast with the objective to end all forms of malnutrition by 2030, this negative trend is increasing.

Malnutrition takes different forms: undernutrition, micronutrient deficiencies, as well as overweight, obesity and nutrition related non-communicable diseases. These forms of malnutrition affect all countries, whether developed or developing. Different forms of malnutrition co-exist within countries, communities, households and individuals. Malnutrition hampers brain development and health. It is a heavy burden on our economies. People who are malnourished perform poorly at work or at school and can’t improve their lives.

The UN General Assembly proclaimed 2016–2025 the United Nations Decade of Action on Nutrition. Governments, inter-governmental organisations, civil society, the private sector, academia and other actors are invited to make commitments and advance on the global nutrition agenda, following the recommendations of the 2030 Global Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Rome Declaration on Nutrition.
