Action Against Hunger’s international network produces a variety of published works from context analysis and regional assessments to community surveys and field reports.
This report shows that funding for undernutrition programs represents a mere one percent of the estimated $11.8 billion that is needed annually, funding levels that remained unchanged between 2005 and 2009. And 11 percent of government and international funding commitments went unfunded. It also provides a detailed analysis on aid reporting systems, assesses the transparency, quantity and effectiveness of nutrition funding in recent years, and provides recommendations on what is needed to adequately address undernutrition.
As a leading partner in the Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP), Action Against Hunger plays a key role in both applying and evaluating new methods for delivering aid to crisis-hit populations. By issuing cash-backed vouchers instead of material goods, organizations like Action Against Hunger can ensure that those affected by emergencies are able to get what they most need, while local vendors are not put out of business by distributions of free food and supplies.
Action Against Hunger’s global magazine, Hunger Matters, delivers perspectives from the front lines of humanitarian action and the race to end deadly malnutrition. Focused on “recurring crises,” this edition of Hunger Matters explores the cyclical nature of global hunger and the seasonal realities that keep too many communities impoverished from year to year. We invite you to learn more about the ongoing challenges faced by these communities and how our innovative solutions are making a difference.
At Action Against Hunger, we have a history of pioneering the application of cutting-edge tools and techniques to old, persistent problems in aid and development. In that tradition, we are a leading partner of the Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP).
