International donors made new financial commitments at the Nutrition for Growth event of up to £2.7 billion over the period 2013 to 2020. Countries which are members of the Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) movement also made financial commitments related to increased allocation of domestic resources. DFID will shortly launch an accountability mechanism to track and report annually on all the Nutrition for Growth commitments.
