GAIN Commits to Transforming Food Systems

Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN)

The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) commits to improving access to nutritious and safe foods in a sustainable way. GAIN will invest at least $250m by 2025 in measures to tackle poor diets in Africa and Asia, working together with national governments and partners.

Under Action Track 1 (Ensuring Access to Safe and Nutritious Food for All) new alliances have been built: we will support the organization of the following post Summit: Youth Leaders’ Act4Food Act4Change; the Coalition of Action for Healthy Diets from Sustainable Food Systems for Children & All; the Zero Hunger Private Sector Pledge; and the True Value of Food Initiative. We will also participate in new alliances to tackle wasting, anemia, and food safety.

By mid-2022, will set targets to green our work, including our own carbon footprint. We will support robust accountability by leading the Food Systems Monitoring Countdown Project with Johns Hopkins University and FAO and have signed the Accountability Pact for action on food systems.

Finally, we commit to working with organizations we meet for the first time via the Summit: a spirit of can-do change with a systems mindset, and the values of inclusion and respect for diversity.
