Namibia

todayMarch 18, 2024 1

Background
share close

In 2021-2022, Namibia initiated its Cost of Hunger in Africa study as part of a broader project conducted across several African countries. Commissioned by the African Union Commission and supported by the World Food Programme and GIZ Namibia, the study was led by the National Planning Commission. Its primary focus was to examine the effects of malnutrition, particularly undernutrition, on various aspects of Namibian society, including learners, human development, and economic factors. Expanding on this initiative is Ben Shernick, a social worker and Director at the Nutrition and Food Security Alliance of Namibia.
