Nutrition for Growth (N4G) commitment
No commitment had been made on the financing of nutrition. However, the National Nutrition Policy adopted in 2020 has a five-year plan with an overall cost of 589,801,384,872 CFA francs. This plan is financed at 366,409,559,643 F, i.e. a gap of 223,391,825,229 F
1. Reduce stunting from 32.9% to 25% by 2020.
2. Reduce wasting from 10.9% to 8% by 2020.
3. Increase exclusive breastfeeding (EBF) from 38.2% to 60% by 2020.
1. The NSS showed a prevalence of chronic malnutrition of 24.9% in 2020 compared to 25.4% in 2019, so this commitment was met in 2020.
2. Global acute malnutrition was 9.1% for the same period. It is above the target (8%).
3. In 2020, the proportion of children exclusively breastfed was 64.3%, exceeding the target set according to the commitments. This proportion can be explained by the implementation of the stronger campaign with breast milk only and the deployment of the ANJE.
At least half of the individual commitment components are assessed to be on course
Organisations of civil society and parliamentarians should be included and considered as key stakeholders in nutrition.
RESONUT (civil society network for nutrition) and REPASEN (network of parliamentarians for food and nutrition security) make nutrition issues a priority. They work in close collaboration with the Nutrition Technical Secretariat to advance the nutrition agenda in Burkina Faso. This commitment is therefore always respected and reinforced.
Reported progress in previous Global Nutrition Reports indicates that commitment has been achieved.
Finalize a national nutrition plan (2016–2020) before the end of 2015, including commitments of financial and human resources to support specific interventions and actions contributing to nutrition.
The National Nutrition Policy 2020-2029 with its strategic plan 2020-2024 was adopted in June 2020. This commitment has been kept.
Reported progress shows that the commitment has been reached, although this is outside of the original timeframe.
