(open until 23 November 2020)

The high-level policy event will emphasize the relevance of MDD-W in the broader context of healthy and sustainable diets and food systems transformation.

Presenters will illustrate how MDD-W data can be used for promoting inclusive food security and nutrition policies at national, regional and global level, as well as for tracking the progress on SDGs, the Nutrition for Growth commitments and the UN Food Systems Summit Action Tracks. The objective is to encourage the political support and mobilization of resources for the MDD-W indicator's continued and scaled-up use with the aim to measure progress towards improving diet quality and at the same time raising awareness on gender-specific dietary needs.
