Nutrition for Growth (N4G) commitment
This year, 13 organisations have agreed to participate in the U.S. NGO Nutrition Pledge, which will run for three years between 2018 and 2020. Collectively, these organisations have committed $1,170,197,768 in nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive funding over the next three years. This total exceeds the 2013 pledge amount by around $420 million, reflecting a growing commitment within the U.S. INGO community to fight hunger and malnutrition around the world. The organisations part of the pledge are as follows: Action Against Hunger, Adventist Development and Relief Agency International, Bread for the World, CARE, Grameen Foundation, Helen Keller International, Islamic Relief USA, Lutheran World Relief, Mercy Corps, NCBA CLUSA, Pan-American Development Foundation, Plan International, and World Vision.
The amount disbursed in nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive interventions in 2018 (US$299,470,350) is below the amount needed by this stage (US$390,065,923) to remain on course for the target of US$1,170,197,768
