The Rise of Nutrition: Coordination, Investments, and the Trump Administration

May 24, 2017 • 3:30 – 5:00 pm EDT
Join the CSIS Global Food Security Project for the launch of our newest report, Staying Power: Considering the U.S. Government's Global Nutrition Coordination Plan, and a broader discussion of sustained global nutrition investments under the Trump administration. A robust and growing evidence base demonstrates very high health, educational, and economic returns on nutrition investments in wealthy and low income countries alike. What does a shrinking foreign assistance budget imply for this effective and resource-efficient sector? Will the coordination plan, a voluntary, whole-of-government effort to maximize impacts of global nutrition programming, have the staying power it needs to succeed? Learn how U.S. agencies are strategically coordinating to generate scalable results. Join an expert dialogue to better understand the impressive returns on nutrition programming, as well as to explore potential funding allocations in a climate of budget constraints.
