CIFF intends to develop, together with the UK Department for International Development (DFID) and the UBS Optimus Foundation, a new catalytic financing facility for nutrition that will aim to attract and incentivize new private and philanthropic funds, alongside increased domestic budgets, to accelerate the scaling up of prioritized high-impact nutrition programs in partner countries. 2015 update: CIFF is currently investing in a number of key ways to address undernutrition and has over the last year committed over US$90 million. Today, CIFF commits up to a further US$700 million to address undernutrition, totalling US$793 million over the period 2013–2020. The large majority of this will be focused on nutrition-specific interventions. This is a historic and transformational commitment for CIFF, because of the importance and urgency we attach to addressing immediately and seriously the continued obscenity of undernutrition of children in developing countries. We intend to use this finance to support partnerships with those countries which are demonstrating political commitment and leadership and shared responsibility with credible plans which are being implemented at scale, and which are transparently measuring progress and results.
