Report to High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development

UNSCN made a submission to the HLPF on the fundamental role of nutrition as a maker of development and an essential accelerator to achieve all SDGs. It emphasized areas that require urgent attention, the guidance required by the HLPF to move the agenda forward and made policy recommendations to accelerate progress in poverty eradication from a human rights-based approach. As a member of the Expert Group Meeting for Nutrition to review SDG2 convened under the auspices of ECOSOC (July 2017), UNSCN worked to secure the centrality of nutrition in achieving SDG2. In 2018, UNSCN continues its engagement with the HLPF, lifting the profile of nutrition within the SDGs.
