Between 2000 and 2016, Senegal made remarkable progress in reducing undernutrition. The prevalence of stunting decreased from 30 to 19 percent.
What did Senegal do differently?
What did it take to mobilize government at the cross ministerial level?
How did CLM get buy-in from local organizations and government?
How did CLM mobilize funding to achieve its goal?
What are the practical lessons for other countries to bring their nutrition programs to scale?

During this seminar/ webinar Mr Abdoulaye Ka, Head of Senegal’s nutrition coordination unit, Cellule de Lutte Contre la Malnutrition (CLM) will discuss concrete practical steps that Senegal has taken to put into action a set of winning program policies and partnerships to become a frontrunner in the fight against malnutrition in Africa.

This webinar will be of great interest to practitioners from ministries, government agencies, institutions, research analysts and students interested in understanding the work of governments, civil society, and the private sector in tackling some of the biggest challenges facing African countries.

The Senegal nutrition success story is one of the case study countries included in The Malabo Montpellier Panel’s report—Nourished: How Africa Can Build a Future Free from Hunger and Malnutrition. The report takes a system­atic country study approach of seven countries in Africa to identify where progress has been achieved and draws lessons for other African countries to replicate such successes. A set of policies and practices are identified that, if scaled up, could have signifi­cant impact on nutrition, child survival, and development in Africa.
