Building a Stronger System for Tracking Nutrition Sensitive Spending: A Methodology and Estimate of Global Spending for Nutrition Sensitive Foreign Aid

A reliable estimate of nutrition spending is critical for effective planning to address the interrelated causes of undernutrition. This study builds on the definition of nutrition-sensitive investments, programs, and interventions to produce a global estimate of resources that have been committed to improving nutrition through multi-sectoral approaches that address underlying determinants of nutrition. The authors present a novel methodology that tracks donor commitments for nutrition-sensitive activity globally and across development sectors.
