Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2)

19-21 November 2014 | UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) headquarters, Rome, Italy

The Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2) will convene at Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) Headquarters in Rome, Italy, from 19-21 November 2014. Jointly organized by FAO and the World Health Organization, ICN2, a high-level ministerial conference, which will propose a flexible policy framework to address major nutrition challenges and identify priorities for international cooperation on nutrition.

ICN2 will bring together policymakers from agriculture, health and other relevant ministries and agencies, representatives of UN agencies and other intergovernmental organizations, and civil society, including NGOs, researchers, the private sector and consumers.

The conference is expected to review progress made towards improving nutrition since 1992, when ICN1 was held, including country-level achievements in scaling up nutrition through direct nutrition interventions and nutrition-enhancing policies and programmes. It will reflect on remaining problems, as well as emerging challenges and opportunities for improving nutrition due to changes in the global economy and food systems, and advances in science and technology.

Other ICN2 objectives are to: review relevant policies and institutions on agriculture, fisheries, health, trade, consumption and social protection to improve nutrition; strengthen institutional policy coherence and coordination, as well as mobilize resources, to improve nutrition; and strengthen international cooperation to enhance nutrition, especially in developing countries.

The conference will also: address all forms of malnutrition, recognizing the nutrition transition and its consequences; and seek to improve nutrition throughout the life cycle, focusing on the poorest and most vulnerable, and on women, infants and young children in emergency situations. ICN2 will also build on ongoing global political processes and initiatives to contribute to the post-2015 UN development agenda, including identifying priority areas and nutrition development goals and policies.

ICN2 will be preceded by a CSO Forum from 17-18 November and a Private Sector pre-event on 18 November, as well a Parliamentary Meeting on 18 November, all of which will feed into ICN2.
