Nutrition Summit in Rio 2016

The Second High Level Summit on Nutrition will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on 4th of August 2016. It is the biggest global event between now and 2020 to address the devastating burden of undernutrition. The EU should seize this opportunity to strengthen the political momentum and reinforce its leadership role in the fight against undernutrition. The Rio 2016 Summit will be the moment to evaluate progress made since 2013 and build on those commitments with the necessary financial support in order to ensure the ambition of the SDGs to end malnutrition in all its forms can be realised.
