12 September 2023

8:30 AM EDT, 2:30 PM CET, 6:00 PM IST

Achieving the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development in an era of crisis upon crises depends on our ability to strengthen the nutrition resilience of individuals and populations – and the systems on which they depend. In preparation for the Forum’s 6th Global Conference, Nutrition for Resilience, in October, this webinar will explore key nutritional drivers to build resilience against infectious disease, climate change, conflict, and other crises around the world. The webinar will bring together leaders to discuss how  to build and bridge national, regional, and global policy agendas on nutrition resilience for a new era of national progress.
