DFID spent £192.8 million on nutrition in 2012 and this is expected to more than double by 2015. DFID has committed £3.3 billion to nutrition in 2013-20 and aims to contribute to a dramatic reduction in the high levels of global undernutrition. To achieve this, DFID has supported global action, invested in projects and generated evidence on new solutions.
This review assesses DFID’s rapidly expanding support to nutrition, focusing on strategy and portfolio coherence. As a result of these findings, we have given a marking of green-amber.
