Global Commitment Critical To Ending Malnutrition By 2030
Thomson Reuters Foundation: Why working to end malnutrition is our profession — and our passion
Roman Tesfaye, first lady of Ethiopia, and Lawrence Haddad, economist and senior research fellow at the International Food Policy Research Institute
“…[T]o make sure governments and donors intensify their investments [against malnutrition], all of us need to hold powerful stakeholders to account. The Global Nutrition Report aims to be a tool to help people all over the world to do this more effectively. To end malnutrition by 2030 we need to form global, national, and regional alliances across a wide range of stakeholders: politicians, parliamentarians, community and religious leaders, the media, civil society organizations, mothers, fathers, and families. No one can achieve this goal working on their own. But working together … anything is possible. Malnutrition is not destiny, it can be prevented through strong political actions and choices. Join us and choose to end it — soon” (6/14).
