The Global Programme Food and Nutrition Security, Enhanced Resilience – financed by the BMZ´s ONE WORLD – No Hunger Initiative – aims at improving the food and nutrition situation of women and small children.

  • Last year the Programme conducted ten Baseline Studies in ten Countries (Benin, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Ethiopia, India, Kenia, Malawi, Mali, Togo, and Zambia) in order to get an overview of the food and nutrition situation. 
  • The Programme conducted interviews with more than 4,000 women living in rural areas in Africa and Asia. 
  • One objective was to obtain data regarding the prevalence of children receiving a minimum acceptable diet (MAD) and the degree of dietary diversity of women of reproductive age (IDDS/MDD-W) as they are generally more affected by malnutrition than other persons.
