Project: Nutrition - still nobody's business?

The global nutrition environment is changing in terms of issues, approaches, structures and stakeholders. However, Norway's engagement with the global nutrition processes is declining. Norway is, therefore, falling behind in its overall approach to nutrition. This report shows that whereas commitments to global nutrition are made in core Norwegian foreign policy and development assistance documents, there is no overarching policy framework for nutrition. Norway needs to develop an approach to build in the missing link to nutrition in its development strategies for food security, health, climate change and social protection.
