The UK is firmly committed to taking forward the important agreements which were made at the 2012 G8 Camp David summit to tackle malnutrition and stunting. These agreements include:
actively supporting the Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) movement; improving tracking and disbursements for nutrition across sectors; and supporting the accelerated release, adoption and consumption of bio-fortified crop varieties.
The UK plans to take forward a number of these G8 commitments on malnutrition and stunting through a major event on hunger which is scheduled to take place during the Olympics. The UK will also continue to play a leading role in the Scaling Up Nutrition movement, recognising that SUN is the most promising mechanism for delivering international resources to the critical '1000 day window' of opportunity. Since 2010 the UK has more than doubled resources for tackling under-nutrition and made a commitment to reach 20 million pregnant women and children under five with nutrition interventions by 2015.
