Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2)

Online public consultation

Invitation to comment on the revised draft of the political outcome document of the ICN2

The consultation is open until 28 May 2014

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO), in cooperation with IFAD, IFPRI, UNESCO, UNICEF, World Bank, WTO, WFP and the High Level Task Force on the Global Food Security Crisis (HLTF), are jointly organizing the Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2), a high-level conference at FAO Headquarters, Rome, from 19 to 21 November 2014.

Two documents are expected to come out of the ICN2:

  • a political outcome document and,
  • a framework of action for its implementation.

On the basis of the discussions at the meetings of the ICN2 Joint Working Group (JWG) and of the comments received on the zero draft political outcome document through the public online consultation, a new shorter, more concise and more coherent Draft of the Rome Declaration on Nutrition has been prepared by the Co-Chairs of the JWG with the assistance of the joint Secretariats of FAO and WHO and is available in the six UN languages.

We now invite you to provide your comments on the new draft version of the document, focusing on the set of questions formulated below and also available in a template form.

This new open consultation, which will start on 14 May 2014 and end on 28 May 2014, is an opportunity to receive inputs from different stakeholders. These contributions will be then compiled by the Joint ICN2 Secretariat and transmitted to the JWG formal meeting on 13 June 2014.

We kindly thank you in advance for providing your comments and for sharing your knowledge and experiences with us. See right of page for the link to the comments section.
