Shifting the Architecture of Nutrition in Humanitarian Contexts





Climate change, the long tail of the COVID-19 pandemic and the proliferation of conflict around the world have led to a rapid increase in the number of children and women who are suffering from the most lethal forms of undernutrition. But the world has never been better prepared to deal with this challenge; we know exactly what to do and how to do it. Over the last few years, UN agencies, civil society organizations, donor governments, philanthropies and the private sector have realigned behind country-led efforts to transform the way the world responds to nutrition crises in humanitarian contexts and beyond.

In this session, audiences will hear from leading stakeholders about the dramatic and often unknown revolutions that are changing the way nutrition is addressed and how these solutions are increasing the impact and efficiency of nutrition responses. This interactive session co-hosted by UNICEF, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the International Rescue Committee and the Nutriset Group will show how policy, service delivery, financing and product innovations have positioned the nutrition sector for rapid change and unleashed its capacity to save millions of lives over the next few years.
