Nutrition for Growth (N4G) commitment
CIFF commits up to a further USD $700 million to address undernutrition, totalling USD $793 million over the period 2013-2020. The large majority of this will be focused on nutrition-specific interventions.
Assuming a linear rate of progress, the sum of 2014 - 2018 (US$331,155,501) is below the required amount by 2018 (US$566,428,571) to remain on course with the target of US$793,000,000
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.
CIFF continues to invest in the Power of Nutrition as an independent fund for nutrition to catalyse new resources and support high-impact programmes to improve childrens nutrition at scale and raise the profile of nutrition in governments, and key global and local partners. The Power of Nutrition currently has 12 programmes in Tanzania, Madagascar, Liberia, Rwanda, Nigeria, Benin, Cte dIvoire, Ethiopia, Burkina Faso, Indonesia and India (Maharashtra and Gujarat).
CIFF has forecast that it will exceed its commitment target of US$793 million by the end of 2020. However, CIFF is behind on disbursements on these commitments, which are currently forecast beyond 2024. The large majority of our funds have been directed to nutrition-sensitive interventions to reach our Nutrition for Growth (N4G) target.
At least half of the individual commitment components are assessed to be on course
