Launch of the Second International Conference on Nutrition

The Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2) to address hunger and malnutrition
19-21 November, Rome
 
Figures paint a stark picture: 842 million people undernourished; about 45 percent of 6.9 million child deaths linked to malnutrition, obesity on the rise in many countries.
 
Despite great strides made in some countries since the first international conference on nutrition held in 1992, progress in reducing hunger and improving nutrition has been unacceptably slow. Malnutrition in all its forms (undernutrition, micronutrient deficiencies and overnutrition) places an intolerable burden on individuals and communities as well as on the cultural, social, economic and health fabric of nations.
 
Recognizing that global problems require global solutions, FAO and the World Health Organization (WHO) are jointly organizing a high-level inter-governmental conference on nutrition to be held in Rome 19-21 November 2014.
