Improving Nutrition Through Accountability and Data Systems: SMART Nutrition for Growth (N4G) Data Commitments
On 17 November 2021, the Nutrition Data Partners Group coordinated a certified side event to the 2021 Nutrition for Growth Summit. The event illustrated important data themes through interesting examples and good practices by country governments. Panelists shared SMART data commitments they have articulated so participants received a sneak preview of N4G data commitments already formulated. The event highlighted concrete ways in which nutrition data has been strengthened, and builds on the potential data commitments recommended by the Nutrition Data Partners Group comprised of UN agencies, donors, and organizations and initiatives working to strengthen nutrition data.
