A recent South-South learning event organized by IFPRI and Mahidol University in Bangkok, Thailand, shared lessons from Thailand’s experience fighting hunger and undernutrition with Asian and African countries including Compact2025 focal countries Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Malawi, and Rwanda. The workshop brought together over 50 stakeholders from government, the private sector, academia, and civil society to discuss how to mobilize communities and work together across multiple sectors for large-scale progress in nutrition. Meeting documents and presentations are available here.
Additional highlights from this week’s Compact2025 News in Brief include:
- Technical brief from Sustainable Nutrition for All highlights the power of multi-sectoral governance to address malnutrition in Uganda and Zambia.
