Nutrition & Foodstuffs

“Malnutrition is a universal issue holding back development with unacceptable human consequences. Yet the opportunity to end malnutrition has never been greater.” Global Nutrition Report

The Challenge

Malnutrition is responsible for more ill health worldwide than any other cause and accounts for around 45% of deaths among children under 5. This problem is particularly acute in South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, where some two thirds (514m) of the world’s undernourished people live (World Health Organisation; United Nations).

With more policy knowledge than ever, we have never been better equipped to end malnutrition and eliminate hunger – one of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals for 2030. Achieving this will require urgent work in areas such as food security and data collection, with a strong focus on adolescents. Season Development stands ready to help across all our focal markets.
