Increasing access to vital nutrients for children

Guided by the United Nations’ (UN) Sustainable Development Goals’ target of zero hunger (SDG 2), Sight and Life, Royal DSM and the UN children’s agency UNICEF entered into a new partnership agreement in September 2017. The updated partnership established in 2017 is designed to deliver better nutrition to at-risk children and mothers in Nigeria. Its three members each draw on their individual resources and skills to provide these groups with vital nutrients during the critical first 1,000 days of life, from conception to the age of two years. They also advocate on a global level the importance of increasing access to vital nutrients for children.
