Nutrition for Growth (N4G) commitment
Commits to addressing the challenge of tackling undernutrition: Nutrition is a mainstream objective of the newly adopted intervention strategic framework of the Agence Française de Développement on food security in Africa south of the Sahara (2013–2016). France puts emphasis on nutrition programs in the framework of its food assistance (up to 50% of the allocated amount). France decided in 2013 to allocate a share of the revenues of its tax on international transactions to improve child health in the Sahel, including the financing of nutrition-related healthcare.
In line with Frances original 2013 commitments, France continues to allocate each year half of its food assistance budget to nutrition programs.
This commitment was reaffirmed in Frances new International Strategy for Food Security, Nutrition and Sustainable Agriculture, for the 2019-2024 period.
The French food assistance budget significantly increased annually in the last years: +16% in 2019 and +30% in 2020.
At least half of the individual commitment components did not receive a response in the reported progress
