Cost of Hunger in Africa

The Cost of Hunger in Africa (COHA) study was a project led by the African Union Commission (AUC) and the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) Planning and Coordinating Agency and supported by the UN Economic Commission for Africa (ECA), and the UN World Food Programme  (WFP). The objective of the study was to estimate the social and economic impact of child undernutrition in Africa.
This continent-wide initiative is placed within the framework of the Revised African Regional Nutrition Strategy (2005-2025), the objectives of the African Task Force on Food and Nutrition Development (ATFFND) and the principles of pillar 3 of the AU/NEPAD’s Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP). The COHA portal documents the results of a study which was carried out in several African countries in three phases. Click here to access the COHA portal and learn about the study findings.
