This project supports the International Food Policy Research Institute in developing and publishing the Global Nutrition Report for 2014. The Report aims to sustain and increase international political commitment to take concrete action to improve nutrition and reduce vulnerability among women and children in countries with high incidence of under-nutrition. The Report will analyze existing data on nutrition, identify knowledge gaps and propose ways to address them. It will also make clear recommendations on priority actions and seek to strengthen stakeholder and citizen engagement to develop a plan to improve nutrition.

Expected results 

The expected intermediate outcomes for this project include: 1) the Global Nutrition Report is released in 2014; 2) the Report provides credible evidence on progress towards improving maternal, infant and young child nutrition; and 3) the Report identifies priority actions to be taken to further improve nutrition.
