This book is the first comprehensive assessment of nutrition in Asia, a region that has the largest concentration of global malnutrition. It reviews a wide array of nutrition-relevant trends, pocies, programmes, challenges and opportunities in Asia. The simple fact that every third child born is malnourished at birth represents an enormous drain on human and economic development. The pay-off to turning this tide is both immense and immeasurable. In the long-term, sustainable poverty-reducing economic growth will simply not be possible without deang with malnutrition. This book describes the main driving forces behind the groundswell of under nutrition. It sheds ght on the emerging double burden of co-existing underweight and overweight and the nkages between these two different forms of malnutrition.
