U.S., Ireland Recommit To Goals Of 1,000 Days Initiative

Writing in the State Department’s “DipNote” blog, Jonathan Shrier, acting special representative for global food security and deputy coordinator for diplomacy at Feed the Future, describes an event co-hosted on Monday by Bread for the World Institute and Concern Worldwide, during which USAID Administrator Rajiv Shah and Irish Minister of State for Trade and Development Joe Costello “renewed the U.S. and Irish governments’ commitment to the goals of the 1,000 Days partnership.” He continues, “Since its launch in 2010, the 1,000 Days initiative has made progress in mobilizing partners to support country-led nutrition strategies and increase action and investments designed to improve the nutritional status of women and children during the 1,000 day window.” Shrier adds, “You can read Dr. Shah’s full remarks here, and you can read the 1,000 Days partnership progress report of the first 1,000 Days of action here” (6/10).
