Nutrition for Growth (N4G) commitment

Reported progress


Financial commitments
Milan 2017

Within the next five years, we will raise another $150 million with which we will be able to leverage a minimum of $600 million of programme investments, for a total of more than one billion dollars of programme investments by 2022. Investing $1 billion in these nutrition programmes will help prevent at least 600,000 cases of stunting in children. With continued and ongoing strong support from our partners, including governments, multilateral organisations and importantly private sector investors we will achieve these high and ambitious goals.

**The Power of Nutrition was founded by UK Aid, the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation, the UBS Optimus Foundation, UNICEF and the World Bank.**
