Key findings:

  • None of the regions are following the recommendations made for a healthy diet.
  • The financial cost of ending malnutrition is increasing. However, the total economic benefits to society from investing in nutrition could reach US$5.7 trillion per year by 2030.
  • Nutrition for Development (NAG) is a global effort. This effort brings together all stakeholders, to accelerate progress to tackle inadequate diet and all forms of malnutrition. N4G should be leveraged by the decision makers.
