The Global Nutrition Report has this week launched the Nutrition Accountability Framework and accompanying commitment registration and tracking platform. It has been launched ahead of the upcoming 7-8 December 2021 Nutrition for Growth Summit being held in Tokyo and virtually.
The Nutrition Accountability Framework (NAF) creates the world’s first independent and comprehensive platform for registering SMART nutrition commitments and monitoring nutrition action. It has been endorsed by the government of Japan, the SUN Movement, the World Health Organization, UNICEF, USAID, GAIN and many others.
The NAF platform comes with a wealth of guidance and information to support SMART commitment-making by all stakeholders including governments, donors, civil society organisations, businesses and others.
It helps inform, shape and inspire strong commitments for nutrition through comprehensive methods for qualifying, classifying and reporting on nutrition action, and monitoring how action translates to impact. This is facilitated through the NAF enabling transparent and accessible sharing of data, evidence and best practice.
Private sector companies seeking to register their workforce nutrition commitments with the Nutrition for Growth Summit can do so through the NAF platform.
The Workforce Nutrition Alliance is available to guide any company with the development of their workforce nutrition commitment and offers a wide array of guidance and links on the Commitment Making page of its website.
