The ENN will host a three-day meeting in Oxford, UK, from 7th to 9th October 2014. This will be a technical learning and networking meeting on nutrition specific and nutrition sensitive programming in emergencies and high burden contexts to inform better practice, research priorities and advocacy. The meeting will engage a broad audience that includes NGOs, UN agencies, SUN, GNC, academia, bilateral and multilateral donors, the private sector and government representatives. A wide range of existing online and social media and tools will be used to capture and rapidly share meeting experiences, discussions and outcomes.

Specific objectives of the meeting are as follows:

  1. To give participants the opportunity to present their work, highlight lessons and share experiences from cutting edge/innovative and new areas of research and programming.
  2. To give participants the opportunity to identify and discuss critical gaps and unanswered questions, in relation to research and programming, with peers from the wider nutrition community and related sectors.
  3. To provide participants with the space to discuss how to collectively move forward in certain key technical and programmatic areas and to allow current working/steering groups in the sector to convene and allow formation of new groups, as necessary.
  4. To strengthen donor and academic understanding of operational challenges both within the sector and in cross-sectoral work streams.
  5.

The Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2), an intergovernmental meeting on nutrition jointly organized by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO), in cooperation with the High Level Task Force on the Global Food Security Crisis (HLTF), IFAD, IFPRI, UNESCO, UNICEF, World Bank, WFP and the WTO, will be held in Rome, 19-21 November 2014.

Community event participants preparing amaranth for feastingICN2 will bring together senior national policymakers from agriculture, health and other relevant ministries and agencies, with leaders of United Nations agencies and other intergovernmental organizations and civil society, including non-governmental organizations, researchers, the private sector and consumers. The conference will review progress made towards improving nutrition since 1992, reflect on nutrition problems that remain, as well as on the new challenges and opportunities for improving nutrition presented by changes in the global economy, in food systems, by advances in science and technology, and identify policy options for improving nutrition.

ICN2 will build on ongoing global political processes and initiatives to contribute to the post-2015 UN development agenda including identifying priority areas, nutrition development goals as well as the policies that are required to achieve, measure and account for them.
