A newly-released video by Coverage Monitoring Network (CMN) is raising awareness of advancements in research and monitoring techniques that enable micro-targeting of the most vulnerable populations in order to get hunger relief to those who need it most.
A staggering 925 million people around the world are hungry or malnourished, greater than the population of the United States, Canada, and the European Union combined. Nearly one-third of all children in developing nations suffer from malnutrition and 1 in 6 infants suffer from low birth rate as a result of undernourishment during pregnancy.
CMN is an inter-agency organization funded by USAID and the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection and is dedicated to identifying, documenting, and sharing information about improving access to nutrition programs. By examining who has not yet benefited from nutrition treatment and what obstacles are preventing access, CMN helps NGOs expand their reach and save more lives. In support of this mission, they also organize workshops, lead training sessions, and provide technical support with the goal of increasing efficiency in hunger relief organizations.
