A Compact to end hunger and undernutrition by 2025 • What C2025 will do: Assist countries to refine and implement their road maps for action toward ending hunger and undernutrition by 2025 • How: By developing national and subnational networks of researchers and policymakers who will identify evidence and tool gaps • Special focus: Enhance implementation at national and subnational levels 2
  3. 3. Multisectoral strategies are key • Smallholder agriculture-led strategies (China and Vietnam) • Help farming households produce and purchase more nutritious foods • Social protection-led strategies (Brazil) • Promote inclusive growth by building and protecting assets from shocks • Integrated nutrition interventions (Thailand) • Address immediate AND underlying causes of undernutrition via, e.g. improved breastfeeding practices, AND biofortification It is possible to accelerate progress 3 • The global community has a higher priority on ending hunger and undernutrition • Experiences of successful countries have shortened the learning curve for others Other strategies show promise, e.g. sanitation (Bangladesh, Ethiopia) and women empowerment (Bangladesh)
  4. 4. Approaches and activities • Serving as knowledge and innovation hub • Sharing experiences, challenges, and solutions within and across countries Sharing knowledge • Using pilot projects to strengthen and scale-up effective strategies • Promoting monitoring and evaluation systems Supporting evidence- based policies and experiments • Providing reliable data for evidence-based policymaking • Collaborating to improve data collection and analytical capacity Mobilizing a data revolution • Facilitating implementation of country policies and strategies • Adapting successful policies to local contexts Facilitating country-led strategies and investments • Supporting and mobilizing established and new players • Strengthening accountability mechanisms at country and global level Strengthening inclusive participation and enhanced accountability 4
