Putting an end to the current nutrition crisis by 2030 is possible, but only if nutrition is embedded within a post-2015 development framework.

Undernutrition continues to afflict 170 million children worldwide and is responsible for nearly 3 million child deaths each year. The life-long and wideranging effects of undernutrition cannot be overstated – brain damage, immune system malfunction, weaker schooling attainment, lower workforce productivity, greater poverty and a greater susceptibility to chronic disease later in life. A new development framework must seek to establish a much clearer and stronger set of nutrition targets and indicators than exist within the current Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
