Alliance2015 has released two reports aimed at contributing to hunger reduction and food security

In preparation for our international launch of the annual Global Hunger Index (GHI) in October 2018 (focussing on forced migration and hunger), Alliance2015 has released two reports:

- The implementation of the EU Action Plan on Nutrition: a contextual analysis of Ethiopia, Nepal, Niger, Pakistan and Zambia”: the study of the 5 countries selected due to their high stunting rates and the presence of Alliance2015 members show reasonable progress but a vital need to sustain and build efforts to meet targets. It concludes that it is essential for NGOs and CSOs to engage with EU counterparts to keep driving down all forms of malnutrition through effective multi-stakeholder action at global, regional, national and sub-national level.

 - “The role of the private sector in food and nutrition security”: this study recognises that engaging with private sector stakeholders to tackle food and nutrition security has become an important SDG delivery strategy for the EU and other major development actors, and aims to point the way towards the practical, evidence-based research and sounder multi-stakeholder, multi-sectoral partnerships which are needed to implement and manage such a strategy by focussing on Alliance2015 examples of engagement.

These two reports are part of a series of Alliance2015 awareness raising activities aimed at focusing on the changes in policy and practice that effectively contribute to hunger reduction and food security and paving the way for renewed momentum, new commitments and stepped up delivery and impact after 2020.
