The goal of this project is to help people in developing countries achieve better health and nutrition by improving the way donor spending on nutrition projects is tracked and reported. Better information on donor spending makes it easier to measure progress in mobilizing resources, highlight gaps in support for better nutrition, improve the quality of development assistance for nutrition, and ultimately, improve nutrition for people in developing countries. This project supports the work of the Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Movement. The project consists of developing and applying a common methodology for accurately and effectively tracking how much money each donor allocates to projects designed to improve nutrition. Within the context of this project, this new methodology is used to determine how much money donors spent on nutrition in 2010, to establish a baseline at the start of the SUN Movement. The project also develops recommendations for improving methods to track and report on nutrition spending in future years.
