African Development Bank (Abidjan)

Stunted Children Today Means Stunted Economies Tomorrow

The head of the African Development Bank, Dr. Akin Adesina, has told the Scaling Up Nutrition conference that it is unacceptable that over 300 million children suffer from extreme hunger, when the world produces a surplus of food. He says malnutrition costs Africa over US$25 billion every year - and that those losses must stop 'now'.

The Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Movement Global Gathering took place in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire on Tuesday, 7th November 2017 at the Conference Centre, Sofitel Hotel Ivoire in Abidjan. SUN Movement members came together to share their inspirational progress and encourage global collaboration in the fight against malnutrition.
