  2. 2. Choices – at micro and macro levels – have a direct bearing on nutrition outcomes Good nutrition contributes to cognitive development, better opportunities for children to realize their potential, and higher earnings later in life, which in turn support macro-economic and societal growth. Poor nutrition impairs productivity, acting as an impediment to national growth. NOURISHED: How Africa Can Build a Future Free From Hunger and Malnutrition – a Malabo Montpellier Panel Report 2017

  13. 13. Conclusions • African governments CAN successfully reduce malnutrition. • Nutrition needs to be prioritized and be at the heart of all efforts. • Policies and interventions beyond just increasing agricultural production are necessary: • improvements in the provision and quality of diets, • leveraging the potential of the agriculture sector and • other rural services such as health, water, sanitation, and hygiene. • Concerted effort - climate change and protracted crises, coupled with urbanization and all forms of malnutrition.
