The UK is committed to integrating nutrition objectives and interventions across multiple sectors including health, humanitarian, women and girls, climate and economic development partnerships. The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, Nutrition Policy Marker is now embedded in our systems to ensure that FCDO programmes contributing to nutrition objectives are 'marked' from the point of programme design, including those in the Horn of Africa. This will help to improve tracking and accountability for nutrition programmes.
