Recognising the importance of the Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2), ARROW joined other civil society organisations in the first face-to-face informal meeting between non-state actors and the Membership of ICN2. The ICN2 is a global intergovernmental conference on addressing malnutrition in all its forms.
Prior to the conference, 200 representatives from a diverse group of civil society and social movements gathered to strategize on ways of advocating at ICN2 and beyond, as well as to develop a joint Civil Society Statement. ARROW and partner CHETNA helped ensure that women’s rights, addressing violence against women, and SRHR are included in this collective statement.
The ICN2 was a high-level intergovernmental meeting that focused global attention on addressing malnutrition in all its forms. The two main outcome documents – the Rome Declaration on Nutrition and the Framework for Action – were endorsed by participating governments at the conference, committing world leaders to establishing national policies aimed at eradicating malnutrition and transforming food systems to make nutritious diets available to all.
