Hidden Hunger: Strategies to Improve Nutrition Quality, edited by H.K. Biesalski and R. Birner, illustrates the global fight against hunger by national governments and international organizations. The book includes a chapter on Compact2025 showing that with the proper framework, committed national leadership, and adequate funding, hunger and undernutrition can be eliminated by 2025.
Additional highlights from this week’s Compact2025 News in Brief include:
- Position paper from Save the Children calls for a step change in generating increased national and global funding for nutrition.
- World Bank paper finds that current levels of private sector investment in agricultural value chains are insufficient to achieve the SDGs.
- Representatives from Uganda and Zambia shared experiences highlighting the importance of multi-sectoral approaches to nutrition governance in a recent webinar.
