Nutrition is a key driver of development, serving as a foundation for health individuals and societies. Investing in nutrition yields permanent and inalienable benefits, with at least a $10 return on investment for every dollar spent. However malnutrition still affects one in three people globally, including the 156 million children worldwide who are stunted.

As a follow up to the October 2016 Human Capital Summit, join us for a panel discussion, co-hosted by the World Bank Group and Department for International Development, United Kingdom, on the importance of nutrition as an investment to unlock human capital and economic prosperity. This high-level event, part of the World Bank Group-International Monetary Fund Spring Meetings 2017, will serve as another collective step forward as we work together to mobilize political commitment, results, and financing towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goal of ending all forms of malnutrition by 2030.
