The Summit comes at a critical time, midway through the United Nations (UN) Decade of Action on Nutrition, with only five years left to achieve the World Health Assembly (WHA) targets on maternal, infant and young child nutrition, and 10 years to reach the SDGs.
Commitment-making is at the heart of the Summit.
As established in the vision for the Summit, governments, business, multilaterals, donors, and other development partners are encouraged to make data-driven financial, policy, programmatic, or impact commitments covering one or more of these three focus areas identified by the government of Japan as critical to achieving the global targets and ending malnutrition in all its forms:
Health - Integrating nutrition into Universal Health Coverage (UHC)
Food -Transforming the food system, so it promotes safe, sustainable, and healthy foods to support people and planet
Resilience - Effectively addressing malnutrition in fragile and conflict-affected contexts, supporting resiliency
