The United Nations Decade of Action on Nutrition (2016-2025)
In order to alleviate the massive global burden of suffering and unfulfilled potential resulting from all forms of malnutrition, Member States of the United Nations (UN) proclaimed the United Nations Decade of Action on Nutrition (Nutrition Decade) in 2016. UN-wide, led by Member States and convened by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO), the Nutrition Decade unites all countries and stakeholders around a common Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2) framework and increases the visibility, efficiency and effectiveness of nutrition action at all levels worldwide.
On the basis of this common framework, WHO, in partnership with the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR), developed the 3-hour e-learning course The United Nations Decade of Action on Nutrition (2016-2025).
By the end of this course, participants will be able to:
- Understand the background and global context that led to the proclamation of the UN Decade of Action on Nutrition (2016-2025).
