Gabon

On 21 December 2016, Minister Yves Fernane Manfoumbi of Gabon’s Ministry of Agriculture, Breeding and Rural Development, signed a letter of commitment to join the 57 SUN Countries and 3 Indian States in the SUN Movement, fighting to end malnutrition in all its forms. At the time, Gabon had opened a national nutrition centre, undertaken regional workshops to implement the recommendations for the Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2) and begun a technical project on Gabon’s national food security and nutrition policy in cooperation with the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO).  In his letter, the Minister stressed that more needed to be done, particularly with a focus on the first 1000-day window of opportunity from conception to two years of age, as he recognized how malnutrition was a considerable barrier to the socio-economic and environmental development of the country.
