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

The Zero Hunger Challenge and ICN2

The Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2) is well aligned with the Zero Hunger Challenge in its vision to eliminate hunger and malnutrition by improving diets and thereby raising levels of nutrition and to create a more sustainable, equitable food system. Both call for the commitment and participation of multiple stakeholders, including governments, researchers, the private sector and civil society organizations, to work together to address major nutrition challenges. ICN2 will bring these groups together to collectively endorse the Rome Declaration on Nutrition and Framework for action for improving nutrition worldwide. One of the overall goals of ICN2 is to contribute to the post-2015 UN development agenda, including the Zero Hunger Challenge, by ensuring a higher degree of policy attention to nutrition issues at the global, regional, national and sub-national levels.
