By Devex Editor 23 September 2015

Join us here for a live webcast on Sept. 24 at 9:45 a.m. ET for a discussion with key luminaries in nutrition.

On the occasion of the U.N. General Assembly and the summit on the adoption of the post-2015 development agenda, GAIN, SUN Business Network and Devex are teaming up for "Harnessing the power of multistakeholder partnerships to achieve the SDGs in food and nutrition security.”

The event will explore the critical role of partnerships in ending hunger, achieving food security and improving nutrition.

Highly esteemed speakers on the first panel will focus on how successful partnerships can be created and how we can build the enabling environment necessary to ensure delivery of the post-2015 development goals.

Later, a second panel of key experts across sectors will dive into the long-term role of multistakeholder partnerships in food fortification: What lessons can be learned and utilized to reduce hunger, improve nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture in support of the post-2015 development agenda?
