Aliments enrichis - persuader le secteur privé de faire le bien

Report
IRIN

LONDRES, 22 avril 2014 (IRIN) - Le Nigeria vient tout juste de passer, en grande pompe dans la catégorie des pays à moyen revenu. Ce n'est pas le genre de pays que l'on associe à la faim généralisée ou un pays dont les habitants obtiennent normalement - ou s'attendent à obtenir - une aide alimentaire. Et pourtant, près d'un quart des jeunes enfants nigérians ont un poids insuffisant et environ 40 pour cent présentent un retard de croissance ; ils ne consomment pas suffisamment d'aliments nutritifs pour développer leur plein potentiel physique et mental.

WFP West Africa Newsletter April 2014

A FORGOTTEN CRISIS IN THE SAHEL

WFP is concerned that a lack of funds could compromise efforts to support households in the Sahel, where many are still recovering from the crisis in 2012.

DAKAR- Two years ago, when the Sahel endured one of the most serious food crises in its history, we all stepped up. Humanitarian organizations provided vital support to populations in crisis, thanks to the extraordinary mobilization of governments, partners on the ground, and the international community, who listened and responded quickly to our appeal.

Fortified food - persuading the private sector to do good

Report
IRIN

LONDON, 18 April 2014 (IRIN) - With a certain amount of fanfare, Nigeria has just officially become a middle income country. It is not the sort of country associated with widespread hunger, or a country where people normally get, or expect to get, food aid. And yet around a quarter of small children in Nigeria are underweight, and around 40 percent are stunted; they do not get enough nutritious food to reach their full physical and mental potential.
