Investing in Nutrition: The Foundation for Development

The world is currently not on track to achieve any of the six global nutrition targets that were agreed to by WHO in 2012. The World Bank, Results for Development, and 1,000 Days, with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation, did an in-depth costing analysis and investment framework for what it would take to achieve four of the six targets. This brief provides a summary of the analysis of the costs, impacts and investments needed, as well as how donors, governments, the private sector, foundations and others can work to together to finance these investments.
