Participation of Andris Piebalgs in the Scaling Up Nutrition Senior Level Meeting

38 views

Andris Piebalgs, Member of the EC in charge of Development, delivered a speech at the meeting of the Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Movement on 14 March 2013. The European Commission has adopted a new strategy aimed at improving maternal and child nutrition, thereby reducing mortality and morbidity, as well as the barriers to growth and development resulting from undernutrition. This new strategy, set out in the communication “Enhancing Maternal and Child Nutrition in External Assistance: an EU Policy Framework” was presented on 14 and 15 March at the meeting of the Scaling Up Nutrition Movement. The new strategy aims to reduce the number of children under five who are stunted (who are too small for their age and who suffer mental development problems). It will achieve this by respecting the EU’s commitment to help partner countries reduce the growth delay in this age group by at least 10% (or 7 million children) by 2025. The new strategy will also address wasting among children (characterised by low weight for height as a result of malnutrition).
