This report builds on UNICEF’s earlier findings on child nutrition by demonstrating the success of efforts to scale up programs. After explaining the causes and consequences of malnutrition, the report provides an assessment of the global status of nutrition. It then considers different nutrition-sensitive interventions and approaches (particularly agriculture and social protection) based on a series of success stories, which include Ethiopia, Haiti, Nepal, Peru and Rwanda for their work to quickly scale up equity-focused initiatives. They show progress through advocacy, better allocation of resources, and investments in tailored policies. Be sure to see the individual country factsheets at the end of the report.
