At the recent Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2), I had the great opportunity to offer a statement congratulating FAO, WHO, partners, and countries for their commitment to eliminate hunger and malnutrition. The two main outcome documents of the conference, the Rome Declaration on Nutrition and the Framework for Action, are great signs of a way forward in securing nutrition globally.

I also spoke to the need to eliminate hunger and undernutrition by 2025. To support this goal, I shared an exciting new partnership proposed by IFPRI for ending global hunger and undernutrition: Compact2025.
