    Food insecurity and poor nutritional status remain widespread problems in the Horn of Africa (HOA). A multi-pronged nutrition-sensitive approach to development has been shown to be the best route for sustained reductions in undernutrition. One of the objectives of this report was to review Food and Nutrition Security (FNS) coordination mechanisms at the subregional and national levels. The study analyses trends and key FNS indicators in the region including reliance on imported food, net exports and trends of undernourishment. It describes challenges, opportunities and gaps that need to be addressed to reduce hunger in the six countries and proposes and a strengthened subregional and national FNS coordination mechanism.

    Food insecurity and poor nutritional status remain widespread problems in the Horn of Africa (HOA). A multi-pronged nutrition-sensitive approach to development has been shown to be the best route for sustained reductions in undernutrition. This approach requires effective coordination. This policy brief articulates the commitment of the HOA states to rapidly scale up comprehensive nutrition services across and within the countries. It also identifies the role parliamentarians, policy-makers and politicians can play in supporting this rapid scale-up and roll-out of Food and Nutrition Security (FNS) services aimed at strengthening FNS coordination.

    The CELAC Plan for Food and Nutrition Security and the Eradication of Hunger 2025. Executive Summary 2015

    Latin America is the sub-region that has made the most progress, achieving both the Millennium Development Goal target to reduce the prevalence of under-nourishment from 14.4% in 1990/92 to 5.1% in 2012/14, and also the more ambitious goal of the World Food Summit (WFS) of 1996, by reducing the total number of people suffering from hunger, from 60.3 million to 29.5 million in the same period. These achievements reflect the commitment of the countries of the region to the implementation of polici es aimed at reducing poverty and inequality, within the framework of a human rights approach. Political commitment at the national and regional level for the eradication of hunger, became the basis for the implementation of institutional frameworks, governance mechanisms and public policies for food and nutrition security, which permit short and long-term interventions to be carried out (“twin-track” approach). In this regard, the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) is commi tted to ensuring Foodand Nutrition Security through a strategy of eradication of hunger and poverty in its Member States. Political will has been directed towards generating effective mechanisms to achieve this goal by the year 2025, in a region that has shown significant progress in this field, with the implementation of sectoral policies that promote the well-being of populations, increase resilience and promote best practices. This commitment, which was acquired by the countries of the region in the year 2005 through the Hunger Free Latin America and Caribbean Initiative, remains in effect as outlined in the two Declarations of the Heads of State and Government of the CELAC (2013 and 2014).
