The Tokyo Nutrition for Growth (N4G) Summit 2021 provides a historic opportunity to transform the way the world tackles the global challenge of malnutrition. 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.
The Summit will be held in December 2021 under the auspices of the government of Japan. The Summit will be preceded by a “springboard” moment, the N4G Kick-Off Event at Goalkeepers Tokyo held on the eve of the opening ceremony of the Olympics. These events will continue the N4G legacy and signal the beginning of a new race toward a healthier, better-nourished future—a race toward a world in which all people, including the most vulnerable, have access to safe, affordable, and nutritious food by 2030.
