Development Initiatives announced as new host for the 2017 Global Nutrition Report


Development Initiatives (DI) has been announced as the host for the 2017 Global Nutrition Report. The report is an independent and comprehensive annual review of the status of the world’s nutrition. A multipartner initiative, it was previously hosted by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI).

DI has played a key role in the Global Nutrition Report in previous years, with Strategic Adviser Judith Randel sitting on the report’s Independent Expert Group. DI has also contributed data analysis on nutrition financing to the report.

Harpinder Collacott, Executive Director at Development Initiatives, said: “We are delighted to host this year’s Global Nutrition Report. It’s a flagship publication that has put nutrition on the global agenda and as a result has immense credibility across the world.”

The Global Nutrition Report documents progress on commitments made on the global stage, and recommends actions to accelerate that progress. The report helps to guide action, build accountability and spark increased commitment for further progress towards reducing malnutrition much faster. The report for 2017 will be launched in November.
