Description/achievement of initiative
In Bolivia, where one out of three children suffers from chronic malnutrition, the SDG-F has supported four municipalities in the adoption of diversified and sustainable agricultural production systems with high nutritional value. This will increase the incomes of the poorest families and improve the nutritional conditions of boys, girls and mothers. The government has committed to scale-up the initiative.
The SDG Fund is supporting 4 municipalities to provide integrated approaches to food security. It has been targeting children aged between 2 and 5, by increasing livelihood opportunities of fruit producers. These pilot programmes are expected to be included into national policies and to be scaled up. The programme can rely on a $1.8 million budget, funded for its half by the SDG-F.
