UK to host high-level meeting on global nutrition and growth
Britain will co-host 'Nutrition for Growth: Beating Hunger through Business and Science' in summer 2013.
The UK government and the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation will be co-hosting a high-level international meeting, Nutrition for Growth: Beating Hunger through Business and Science on 8 June in central London.
The event will bring together business leaders, scientists, governments and civil society to make the ambitious commitments needed to tackle undernutrition in some of the world’s poorest countries, enabling people and nations to prosper.
The event follows on from the UK-Brazil Hunger Summit held in London last summer, which highlighted the devastating consequences of undernutrition on children.
