Governments, donors, civil society, and the private sector all have an opportunity to step up and make SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound) nutrition-inclusive commitments to tackle the global malnutrition crisis.

The latter half provides the rationale for each of the pledges and signposts towards helpful resources, including official guidance notes and case studies, to support country implementation.
