After close to 15 years of relatively successful nutrition policy development and programming, Senegal is at a crossroad to renew the policy and programming environment that will help the country deal with the more deep-rooted problems of malnutrition. This requires enhanced multisectoral engagement and community dialogue as outlined in the National Nutrition Policy and National Multisectoral Nutrition Strategic Plan.
Malawi has the highest rate of chronic malnutrition in Africa. To improve the lives of millions of Malawians and fight malnutrition, the government is scaling up nutrition interventions and making these programs central to development. However, Malawi needed to build capacity for effective implementation and policy leadership, as well as mechanisms for multi-sector coordination. The government also needed to learn about different nutrition interventions before launching the World Bank-financed project to fight malnutrition.
