A new report from the Malabo Montpellier Panel, “Nourished: How Africa Can Build a Future Free from Hunger and Malnutrition,” reviews progress in reducing malnutrition levels in Africa. The report draws lessons from successful interventions such as breastfeeding and biofortification, and presents case studies from seven African countries that have been particularly successful in reducing malnutrition levels. The co-chairs of the Panel distill five key lessons for policymakers from the report in a recent Devex article.
