Abstract Introduction:<\b>
Physical inactivity is a leading risk factor for global mortality and a contributor to the rise in overweight and obesity. In 2010 WHO published Global recommendations on physical activity for health for three population-age groups, but did not cover children under 5 years. The important interactions between physical activity, sedentary behaviour and adequate sleep time on physical and mental health and wellbeing were recognized by the Commission on Ending Childhood Obesity in 2016 and they called for clear guidance on these three aspects of movement for young children. Methods:<\b>
In March 2017 WHO commenced the development of new guidelines on movement, sleep and sedentary behavior for children under 5 years following the GRADE protocols. Following approval of proposed methods, an international group of experts formed the Guideline Development Group (GDG). The GDG held two meetings, first to finalize the PICO questions, scope of literature review and protocols, and second, to review the scientific findings and draft recommendations for external review. The process was supported by collaboration with experts in Canada and Australia and their extensive scientific work completed in 2016. Additional searches updated and expanded the languages of these existing reviews. Results:<\b>
The final global recommendations for the early years will be due for completion and launch in late 2018. Results from the development process as well as the global recommendations will be presented. Conclusion:<\b>
This new global guidance will fill a gap in the recommendations on physical activity and support developing national policy and actions for early years.
