The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development proposes a global rethink to strengthen collaborative action towards the goal of ending malnutrition in all its forms and promoting healthy- sustainable diets to ensure food and nutrition security and improve public health outcomes. Policy actions are required at a multisectoral level to achieve global public health targets.
Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) through its nutrition committee, has been actively working across multiple sectors to foster multi-stakeholder dialog and action towards increasing awareness, advocacy, and technical assistance in advancing the Public Health and Nutrition agenda. This Committee works with key players in the private sector in both food and non-food businesses, development agencies, regulatory agencies, and central and state governments to further the cause and encourage systemic actions that will enable better nutrition.
I am pleased to inform you that in yet another step in taking this agenda forward, we are organising the 3rd Edition of the National Nutrition Conclave. This year’s virtual conclave is an opportunity for Government, Development Agencies, Industries and related stakeholders to come together to deliberate on critical challenges and emerging opportunities, with a view to creating a roadmap for thoughtful action that will strengthen the pathways of convergence that need to be scaled as India works towards the SDGs.
