Generation Nutrition financial and political asks towards the EU for the Nutrition for Growth Summit

Published  : 15/03/2021
Deadline : 29/03/2021


Generation Nutrition is a network of civil society organisations, collaborating to end malnutrition in all its forms by 2030. Members of Generation Nutrition include Action Against Hunger, Alliance2015, CARE, Global Health Advocates, Save the Children, WaterAid and World Vision. The coalition’s main work stream in 2021 is around the upcoming Nutrition for Growth (N4G) Summit, which will take place in Tokyo in December 2021. Generation Nutrition’s advocacy in 2021 aims at securing new financial and political commitments from the EU for nutrition.

At the last Nutrition for Growth summit in 2013, the EU announced a financial commitment of 3,5 billion euros for nutrition for the period 2014-2020 (3,1 billion euros for nutrition-sensitive interventions and 400 million for nutrition-specific interventions). In 2014, the EU launched its Action Plan on Nutrition where it committed to reduce the number of stunted children under five by 7 million by 2025. Every year, the EU takes stock of its progress in meeting its financial and political commitment in a progress report. Its financial commitment has expired in December 2020 and as of today no new pledge has been announced.

The world is not on track of reaching the global nutrition targets of the World Health Assembly nor the Sustainable Development Goal 2 on Zero Hunger. The COVID-19 pandemic will also worsen the nutritional status of the most vulnerable and threatens to halt or reverse gains. In this context, Generation Nutrition believes the EU’s leadership on nutrition is crucial and the international community expects the EU to take new political and financial commitments for 2021-2027.

This consultancy aims at defining a position paper with:

  1. a credible but ambitious financial target for the EU to commit for nutrition for the 2021-2027 period, in light of needs and the financial gap to reach the nutrition targets as well as the EU’s previous performances on nutrition and existing commitments (NDICI, Farm to Fork, EU Action Plan on Nutrition, etc). The ask should be monitorable and divided between nutrition specific and nutrition sensitive interventions. The financial ask should be backed with a solid rationale, data and evidence.
  2. political asks on the five core areas of the summit (health, food, resilience/fragility, data and financing), on the basis of what the coalition has already drafted, with a special focus on strengthening and updating the policy recommendations and following the N4G working groups recommendations (in terms of structure)
