To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, with reference to his Department's commitment at the Nutrition for Growth Summit in December 2021, what progress he has made on (a) spending £1.5 billion by 2030 on tackling global malnutrition and (b) maintaining 20 per cent of overall nutrition spending specifically on nutrition programmes.

Information about spending to tackle global malnutrition in 2021 and 2022 will be made available through Statistics for International Development (SIDS) in Autumn 2022 and Autumn 2023 (respectively). We will continue to publish our spend information by project on DevTracker as always (updated monthly).  The FCDO has disbursed over £5 billion of Official Development Assistance for nutrition between 2013 and 2020 and spent £530.2 million on nutrition specific programmes, just missing our 2020 target of £574.8 million. We are now focused on achieving our 2021 Nutrition for Growth commitment to spend £1.5 billion by 2030.
