Tackling undernutrition: progress made by the UK since 8 June 2013.
On June 8 2013, the UK along with a number of other countries, businesses and charities, set out its commitments to beat global hunger and undernutrition. The ‘Nutrition for Growth: one year on’ report provides an update on progress made by the UK to reach these commitments. Highlights include the expansion of programmes in Africa and Asia to address the immediate and underlying causes of undernutrition and the development of a number of new research partnerships to identify innovative solutions to this global challenge. The report also includes data from a new report by Development Initiatives which shows that DFID’s spending for nutrition increased from $342 million in 2010 to $475 million in 2012. Progress made globally towards Nutrition for Growth targets to reduce undernutrition will be tracked annually through a new Global Nutrition Report that will first be published in November 2014.
