Launch of the 2016 Global Nutrition Report
The McGill Centre for the Convergence of Health and Economics (MCCHE), in conjunction with the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) and the Micronutrient Initiative (MI), is launching the 2016 Global Nutrition Report (GNR) on November 1, 2016 from 5:30 - 8:30 p.m. at the McGill SSMU Ballroom (3rd floor), 3480 McTavish Street, Montreal. Few challenges facing the global community today match the scale of malnutrition, a condition that directly affects one in three people. The Global Nutrition Report is an independent, multi-partner initiative that holds a mirror to our successes and failures at meeting intergovernmental nutrition targets. Building on previous editions, the 2016 Report offers an optimistic message that when we – from public agencies, businesses, civil society organizations, academia, and other stakeholder groups – work together, our collective impact can achieve the changes needed to sustainably transform lives, communities, and the future.
The GNR Canada launch will highlight the findings and recommendations of the 2016 Report and convene a panel of global experts to reflect on opportunities for Canadians in addressing the challenges of malnutrition at home and abroad. Our launch will also feature a designated food section area showcasing innovative social and commercial food start-ups. Furthermore, we will explore possibilities to engage in what we call Convergent Innovation (CI), which places the nutrition and health of people and planet at the forefront of social and commercial entrepreneurship and aims for sustainable development and affordable healthcare for all.
