A Chance to Grow - How Social Protection Can Tackle Child Malnutrition and Promote Economic Opportunities

A chance to Grow Publication

This report focuses on one component of social protection – social transfers – which are particularly relevant to simultaneously enhance economic growth, food security and nutrition. It calls on developing country government and donors to encourage and reinforce social protection programmes – and in so doing reduce child hunger and malnutrition. It finds that the increased focus on social protection as a result of the global economic crisis has not translated into a response in terms of increased spending on social protection: indeed there are accelerating cuts as a % of GDP.
