EU announces €410 m for nutrition

The European Union will commit EUR 410 million for nutrition specific interventions between 2014-2020, EU Development Commissioner, Andris Piebalgs, announced at a donors' event on nutrition that took place in London on June 8.
Out of this total sum,  EUR 340 million is additional to what would have been spent if 2009-2012 average levels of payment in nutrition specific interventions had been maintained between 2013-2020. Over the next ten years the EU intends to support some 50 countries, including 40 in Africa.
The EU also announced that in the next seven years, it will commit to spend as much as EUR 3.1 billion for nutrition sensitive programmes. The money will be invested as part of programmes in other areas such as agriculture, education, water and social protection.
The June, 8 event "Nutrition for Growth, Beating Hunger through Business and Science Event" brought together several Heads of State from Africa, including Cote d'Ivoire, Malawi, Uganda and Tanzania. The conference gathered a total of EUR 3.12 billion for fighting under-nutrition worldwide, the UK Development Secretary Justine Greening announced.
