Stakeholder Group

The commissioning and development of the Global Nutrition Report is guided by a high-level Stakeholder Group comprising members of government, donor organisations, civil society, multilateral organisations and the business sector. The Stakeholder Group provides strategic leadership in building support for the Report and an Executive Committee is responsible for liaising between the Stakeholder Group and the Independent Expert Group.
