DFID officials meet regularly with civil society organisations which are part of the International Coalition for Advocacy on Nutrition (ICAN) to discuss a wide range of nutrition policy issues including preparations for the Global Nutrition Summit 2020. I have also met representatives from ICAN. The UK Government intends to continue to work closely with civil society organisations in the run up to the Summit. Japan, as hosts of the Summit are also already in dialogue with civil society. The UK, which is working closely with the Government of Japan on Summit preparations, has encouraged and facilitated this dialogue and will continue to do so.
