Africa Loses $25bn Every Year To Malnutrition- Adesina

Despite surplus food in the world, Africa loses $25bn every year to malnutrition, the President of the African Development Bank and former Minister of Agriculture, Dr. Akinwumi Adesina, has said.

A statement issued on Monday by the Communications Officer of Scaling Up Nutrition Movement, Lilian Ajah-mong, said Adesina made the observations in Abidjan, Cote-d’Ivoire during the gathering of 900 participants from 60 countries, including Nigeria, to review progress in tackling malnutrition and share innovations and best practices to drive progress.

 

Other participants included representatives of the government, academia, civil society organisations, United Nations and the business community.

The 2017 SUN Global Gathering brought together all SUN Government Focal Points and representatives of their partners from civil society organisations, donors, United Nations’ agencies, private sector partners, academia, media, parliamentarians and others.
