Action Plan on Nutrition

This third progress report presents highlights of operational developments in the European Union's (EU) external assistance concerned with nutrition and provides updates on progress towards its two commitments in nutrition : - to support partner countries in reducing the number of stunted children under the age of five by at least 7 million by 2025 - to ensure the allocation of EUR 3.5 billion between 2014 and 2020 to improve nutrition in developing countries.
The objective of the project is to contribute to improvements in the nutritional status of children and women in Lao PDR in line with the National Nutrition Strategy 2016-2025, with Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 2 "End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture" and the "8th National Socio-Economic Development Plan 2016-2020".
Sri Lanka has impressive socio-economic indicators at national level in comparison to many of its South Asian neighbours. However, at the same time, significant income, health and nutrition inequalities are evident, both between different geographic areas and across wealth groups.
