The Department for International Development (DFID), which leads the UK’s work to end hunger and extreme poverty, has acknowledged the importance of nutrition in overall development and made critical contributions to the malnutrition crisis. This is reflected in its 2011 nutrition position paper Scaling Up Nutrition, which has guided DFID’s priorities over the period 2011-2015.

As the department embarks on a review of its strategic priorities, Action Against Hunger, Concern Worldwide and RESULTS UK recommend that they refresh Scaling Up Nutrition. This synopsis summarises 20 key recommendations to shape future programmes and priorities for improved impact.
