This report from the United Nations Standing Committee on Nutrition (UNSCN) describes the network of public and private actors with mandates to fight malnutrition, and provides recommendations regarding the role of UNSCN as global governance body. The report also identifies three challenges for global nutrition governance, namely better accountability for results, clearer lines of responsibility for certain technical areas, and the need for better governance and increasing policy coherence of nutrition-sensitive interventions across different sectors (social protection, agriculture, education, among others).
