Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2), 19-21 November 2014

Stakeholders involvement

Evidence has shown that the creation of more inclusive fora have enabled greater participation, transparency, inclusion and plurality in policy discussions, thus leading to increased ownership of decisions made at global level. It is also necessary to mobilize the knowledge and capacities of all the different stakeholders to generate political consensus to promote nutrition as a priority in the global development agenda. 

In the light of the above, the Governing Bodies of FAO and WHO requested that both agencies ensure consultations with all relevant stakeholders, including with other United Nations organizations working in the field of nutrition, nongovernmental organizations and the private sector.


The two Organizations developed a road map for Non-State-Actors (NSAs) to contribute to the process leading up to ICN2, as well as to the Conference itself, in keeping with the rules and practices concerning participation by, and engagement with, NSAs in the activities and meetings of the two agencies.
