Economic development depends on nutrition

The Sight and Life Nutrition Leadership Award has been created to honor individuals or organizations whose work has made a significant contribution to furthering global nutrition security.Presenting the inaugural Nutrition Leadership Award to Dr David Nabarro on the day dedicated to the topic of food and nutrition security at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Klaus Kraemer said, “We are seeing a collaboration never experienced before. Organizations, foundations, businesses, governments and civil society have come together to support the SUN movement and the countries that have signed up to it. This gives us hope, for by harnessing our individual strengths, we can create real and sustainable change.” Accepting the award, Dr Nabarro was quick to make clear that it was being made not to him as an individual but “to the thousands who have come together to make the SUN shine.” He went on to stress that development has to be sensitive to nutrition issues, as nutrition security is essential not only for individuals but also for societies. “Economic development depends on human capital development, and that depends on nutrition,” Dr Nabarro observed. “Nutrition on its own should become a new development goal as we look beyond 2015.” The Sight and Life Nutrition Leadership Award will be pre- sented every other year. We will welcome nominations for the 2014 award in 2013.
