A recording of the September grassroots conference call is now available to download here.
Poor nutrition leads to millions of child deaths and wasted human potential, but is entirely preventable. The UK has played a big role in the global fight against malnutrition. In 2013, then Prime Minister David Cameron established the ‘Nutrition for Growth’ (‘N4G’) agenda, raising $23 billion of new funding for nutrition programmes.
But four years on, progress has slowed, leaving much still to be done. The commitments made in 2013 will be insufficient to meet global nutrition targets, and new financial commitments are now needed. This November, the next ‘Nutrition for Growth’ meeting will be held in Milan, Italy.
For this month’s action we’re asking the UK Government turns its continued support for nutrition into financial commitments in Milan, enabling every child to get the healthy start in life they deserve.
We were joined on the call by Anushree Shiroor, RESULTS UK’s Nutrition Policy Advocacy Officer. Anushree answered questions from grassroots campaigners across the UK on everything from the importance of tackling long-term malnutrition alongside humanitarian emergencies such as famines, to what she hopes will happen at the Milan event.
