The global nutrition report: From promise to impact
This report (PDF) published by IFPRI is the only independent and comprehensive annual review of the state of the world’s nutrition. This year’s edition has a strong focus on political commitment to nutrition and provides guidelines for what is necessary to end malnutrition by 2030. Findings reveal a global lack of progress against malnutrition – which now afflicts one in three people worldwide. Beyond health burdens, the report offers new data on the cost of malnutrition to societies and individuals, explores examples of progress and offers ways to engage stakeholders to help end malnutrition across a variety of sectors – from education and agriculture to sanitation and hygiene. The 2016 Global Nutrition Report points to ways to reverse this trend and end all forms of malnutrition by 2030. Some of the calls for action are: invest in more and better data to assess progress; create SMART targets and commitments; create a global reporting mechanism for nutrition; work across Ministries on malnutrition through task forces; and increase the budgets allocated to nutrition specific programs, obesity, and nutrition-related noncommunicable diseases.
