Nutrition provides the foundation for children to grow and economies to develop.

Results has a significant track record of impact on nutrition. Our organisation has its origins in the movement to end hunger in the 1970s. For decades, Results has concentrated on the nutrition of children in the earliest stages of life, with the goal of reducing malnutrition.

Our advocacy on this issue has led to a $10 million commitment from the Australian Government to the International Fund for Agricultural Development, a United Nations agency specialising in reducing rural poverty, and a $40 million commitment for nutrition programs in the Asia-Pacific region at the Nutrition for Growth Summit in 2013.

The world is off track to meet Sustainable Development Goal 2.2 to end all forms of malnutrition by 2030. Results is committed to ensuring the Australian Government stand in global solidarity with the world's poorest nations. We encourage Australia to contribute to an established global partnership devoted to tackling malnutrition that particularly affect women and children (such as the Global Financing Facility
for Women, Children and Adolescents).


Our latest nutrition publication, 'Food security and nutrition in Asia and the Pacific' is out now!

To tackle nutrition challenges in our region, Australia should:

  1. Develop a comprehensive Food Security Strategy that takes a multisectoral approach to strengthen food systems and improve nutrition in our region

  2. Provide new funding (AU$30 million over five years) to fund nutrition partnerships and address food insecurity

  3. Ensure nutrition-sensitive investments are prioritised in the creation of Development Partnership Plans.

Australia should work with partners to:

  1. Reduce stunting and wasting in children under five

  2. Promote healthy diets

  3. Provide support during pregnancy to prevent, identify and treat the conditions that cause low birthweight

  4. Increase rates of breastfeeding Support farmers and communities to create equitable food systems

  5. Invest in social protection to improve access to nutritious food.
