Project Description
The objective of the Maternal and Child Nutrition Enhancement Project for Burundi is to increase production and consumption of micronutrient rich foods among targeted groups in Gihofi and Makamba, Burundi. Burundi has recognized that one of the most viable strategies for achieving SDGs is to adopt the SUN strategy of focusing on the 1000-day window of opportunity directed at women of reproductive age, newborn and young children under the age of two years. The project is designed within the objectives articulated in the PSMSAN to contribute to long-term stunting reduction efforts. The project is aligned with the strategic objectives of the World Bank Group’s Burundi Country Assistance Strategy for FY13-16. It contributes to pillar one (enabling environment for inclusive growth and poverty reduction) and pillar two (increasing resilience) as the purpose of the grant is to develop a replicable model for building household and community resilience to food and nutrition insecurity shocks that when scaled up can contribute to promoting the livelihoods and health of the most vulnerable populations in Burundi.
