Multiannual Financial Framework 2021-2027
Making the case for investing in nutrition
The EU has committed to support partner countries in reducing the number of stunted children by at least 7 million by 2025. Unfortunately, despite all commitments the world is not on track to reach SDG2 and the EU’s own commitments are achievable only if nutrition continues to be priorities and interventions scaled up. Generation Nutrition, a coalition of Brussels-based civil society organisations therefore urges the European Union to make poverty eradication, combating inequality and the achievement of Agenda2030 central to the objectives of the draft EU regulation for its 2020-2027 development and international cooperation policy and keep nutrition at the core of EU external action.
