An impressive $3+ billion committed to nutrition at the #N4G #NutritionYearOfAction launch today! This must just be the beginning if we are to rid the world of malnutrition https://nutritionforgrowth.org/nutrition-year-of-action-launch-event-press-release/ @nutritonwin
Excited to share that we’ve kicked off the #NutritionYearOfAction with over $3 billion in commitments in order to reach the world’s most vulnerable populations. https://nutritionforgrowth.org/commitment-details/
We raised over $3B at the last Global Nutrition Summit in 2017. Unless we mobilize even more during this #NutritionYearofAction, we risk losing decades of progress on nutrition. https://nutritionforgrowth.org/nutrition-year-of-action-launch-event-press-release/
For too long, investments in nutrition have been far too low. Poor nutrition underpins nearly ½ of child deaths, yet nutrition accounts for <1% of ODA.
#NutritionYearofAction investments are a critical start to change make investments match the need. https://nutritionforgrowth.org/nutrition-year-of-action-launch-event-press-release/
New data estimates $30B in productivity losses due to increased chronic disease risk.
We must recommit to nutrition this #NutritionYearOfAction to reverse this trend https://www.researchsquare.com/article/rs-123716/v1
Global nutrition leaders joined the Governments of Canada + Bangladesh to kick off a #NutritionYearOfAction on Monday where recommitments to nutrition were made for a future w/out malnutrition. https://nutritionforgrowth.org/nutrition-year-of-action-launch-event-press-release/
Without action, an additional 168k children will die by 2022 due to the impacts of #COVID19 alone on nutrition. New pledges, including the $3+ billion made at the #NutritionYearOfAction Launch, are an essential start to reversing this trend. https://nutritionforgrowth.org/nutrition-year-of-action-launch-event-press-release/
Global leaders have stepped up to fight malnutrition at the #NutritionYearOfAction launch. We all have a role to play and must recommit to nutrition together. https://nutritionforgrowth.org/nutrition-year-of-action-launch-event-press-release/
Dramatic increases in child and maternal undernutrition due to #COVID19 could reverse a decade of progress on nutrition. The time to recommit to nutrition is now. #NutritionYearOfAction https://nutritionforgrowth.org/make-a-commitment/
The cost of inaction is too high. New data estimates over 10 million additional children will be malnourished and 168K will die if greater investments aren’t made. #NutritionYearOfAction https://www.researchsquare.com/article/rs-123716/v1
Malnutrition impacts women and girls disproportionately, leaving them vulnerable to hunger and nutrition. Empowering these populations is critical and must be central to all #COVID19 responses this #NutritionYearOfAction https://nutritionforgrowth.org/
It’s clear what we have to do across each sector. With $3+ billion raised to date, it’s on us to continue the momentum to sustain nutrition programming at its current levels. It’s time we recommit to nutrition together. https://nutritionforgrowth.org/make-a-commitment/
