If $300 million increase would address wasting, who would that money go to, and ho would it be used?
Dorothy, RESULTS (she/her)
33:32
Great question Roger! My understanding - but Kathleen please jump in - is that it would be used to buy and distribute ready-to-use therapeutic food (RUTF), such as plumpy'nut
Dorothy, RESULTS (she/her)
34:46
Many organizations - including USAID - buy and distribute RUTF but UNICEF buys and distributes about 80% of all RUTF globally.

What Anne is saying reminds me of how important it is to have the local government of countries where kids are starving aware of the severity of the situation andhave them commit to take action. We must continue advocacy directly to those governments

Thank you Anne for the heartfelt testimony from the ground 👏

There is a huge gap in the financing for nutrition interventions like what Anne is describing and what has been pledged. Despite the historic $27 billion pledge total at the Nutrition for Growth Summit last December, analysis shows that there is a gage of $10.8 billion/year over 2022−2030 just for "nutrition-specific" services. Accounting for nutrition-sensitive needs towards the full gamut of SDG 2 targets, the total needs are estimated at US$39−50 billion per year.
