‘Collective Action’ Benefits Nutrition Initiatives

“We are witnessing a pivotal moment for nutrition. Forty-two countries have committed to scaling-up nutrition through the SUN Movement, and this number continues to grow. Governments and donors have pledged billions — $4.15 billion at the Nutrition for Growth event in the U.K. this June,” Manfred Eggersdorfer, a professor at the University Medical Center Groningen and a senior vice president at DSM Nutritional Products, writes in the Global Agriculture Development Initiative’s “Global Food for Thought” blog, adding, “But perhaps the most important development has been a new spirit of collaboration.” He continues, “Collective action is vital because every sector touches nutrition, and nutrition touches every sector.” He discusses how collaborative projects are working to address chronic micronutrient deficiencies (12/12).
