Global Nutrition Policy Analyst 
Bristol (with flexiblity), UK
Full application details and person specification can be found here

The Global Nutrition Report (GNR) is the world’s foremost publication on the
status of malnutrition around the world. It acts as a stock-take on the world’s
nutrition – globally, regionally and country by country – and on efforts to
improve it. It tracks progress on global nutrition targets, ranging from dietrelated non-communicable diseases to maternal, infant and young child

The GNR aims to provide a single authoritative source on progress towards
addressing global malnutrition. It is a key resource providing data and
evidence on nutrition and reflects the high standards of quality and
independence required of all Development Initiatives (DI) products.

The 2018 Global Nutrition Report reviews existing processes, highlights
progress in combating malnutrition, identifies challenges and proposes ways
to solve them. Through this, the report guides action, builds accountability and
sparks increased commitment to furthering the progress that can reduce
malnutrition much faster.

It is researched, analysed and written by the co-chairs of an Independent
Expert Group (IEG) of world-leading academics, researchers and government
representatives. The IEG is consulted on, inputs into and reviews the report. A
wider Stakeholder Group (SG) – drawn from government, donor, civil society,
multilateral and private sector organisations – provides strategic leadership of
the report.

the report, its communications and outreach strategy, as well as all on and

serving as DI’s contact with the SG, that provides governance for the GNR.
