Report to High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development

UNSCN provided input to the thematic review of the United Nations High Level Political Forum (HLPF), which is set to take place at the UN headquarters in New York from 9 - 18 July 2019. The contribution is in line with the 2019 theme “Empowering people and ensuring inclusiveness and equality” and provides guidance on how nutrition can be a connecting force between the SDGs and a catalyst to their achievement. It also emphasizes areas that require urgent attention and the need to accelerate progress in poverty eradication from a human rights-based approach.
