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 prevalence of stunting in 2020 is 24.9% and 21.6% in 2021: commitment achieved,
2. The prevalence of acute malnutrition in 2020 is 9.1 and 9.7 in 2021: a commitment not yet met. This situation could be explained by the current security context in the country, which is causing massive population displacement.
3. The proportion of exclusively breastfed children in 2020 is 63.4% and 69.9% in 2021: commitment achieved.
At least half of the individual commitment components are assessed to be on course or reached
Organisations of civil society and parliamentarians should be included and considered as key stakeholders in nutrition.
The national multisectoral nutrition platform takes into account several networks, including the civil society network (RESONUT) for nutrition and the network of parliamentarians for nutrition (REPASEN). These two networks are very active and have contributed strongly to the advocacy for the adoption of the policy and the raising of the level of institutional anchoring of nutrition in Burkina Faso.
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 was revised and adopted on 3 June 2020 as the National Multisectoral Nutrition Policy. It is accompanied by a multisectoral nutrition strategic plan and a monitoring and evaluation plan. The date of adoption of this policy goes beyond the deadline of the country's commitment (2015)
Reported progress shows that the commitment has been reached, although this is outside of the original timeframe.
