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.
While France is committed to fight all forms of malnutrition, we still focus on undernutrition, as foreseen by our strategy.
In 2020 (from jaanuary to DJecember), based on SUN donor methodology (strictly applying the coefficients), 56% of the projects funded via food assistance included nutrition objective, which corresponds to 36 % of the total allocated funds. Please note it is slightly different than what was declared previous year (we declared 34% instead of 36%).
In 2021 (from January to December), 76% of the projects funded via food assistance included nutrition. 2021 was the first year we started to use the NPM OECD score to track our commitments in nutrition, meaning that we took into account all the projects NPM-scored 1 or 2.
At least half of the individual commitment components appear to be on course
