Investment In ‘Good Data’ Will Ensure World Meets SDG Nutrition Targets

The Guardian: Data is the magic ingredient that can bring good nutrition to global fruition
Michael Anderson, CEO of the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation

“…Good data … is the magic ingredient to ensure we have evidence of what actually works. Only good data can tell us where the problems are and where the money is going. Only by investing in data and evidence can we measure the impact of what we do. Without measurement, we are guessing. … We can meet the global goal of ending malnutrition in all its forms by 2030 if we increase political commitment and resources for nutrition, which includes investment in data. We know that with the right nutrition at the right time, every child has a chance to survive and thrive. And they deserve that” (9/16).
