Global Food Assistance and the Fight Against Childhood Malnutrition - The Brookings Institution
Join a discussion of the challenges in global food assistance and how recent developments and initiatives can be expanded to effectively tackle the ongoing crisis of global child malnutrition. Malnutrition threatens the survival and development of millions of children around the world. Global commitments to provide more nutritional food assistance to combat child malnutrition often struggle to meet local needs while at the same time maintaining the organizational guidelines of donors. As a result, global food aid commitments often lead to ineffective policies and incomplete programs. Panelists include representatives from USAID, the World Bank, MSF, and Helen Keller International.
