Report of UN World Food Programme

Posted On: 18 JUL 2019 4:38PM by PIB Delhi

The report prepared in collaboration between Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation and World Food Programme, provides a baseline using the available data from government sources which will be updated to measure the progress over a period of time as and when the new datasets of government are released.  The analysis shows annual decline in rate of stunting during the period 2005-2006 to 2015-16.

 

Statement of time series of yield of major agricultural crops upto 3rd Advance Estimates 2018-19 is at Annex-A.

 

As per the Report of Nutritional Intake in India, 2011-12 published under 68th round of National Sample Survey Office (NSSO), the average dietary energy intake per person per day was 2233 Kcal for rural India and 2206 Kcal for urban India, which is lower than Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) of 2320 Kcal.

 

The Government has set up POSHAN Abhiyaan on 18.12.2017 for a three year time frame, commencing from 2017-18. The Abhiyaan aims to reduce malnutrition in the Country in a phased manner, through a life cycle approach, by adopting a synergised and result oriented approach. The Abhiyaan will ensure mechanisms for timely service delivery and a robust monitoring as well as intervention infrastructure. The target of the Abhiyaan is to reduce stunting in children (0-6 years), under-nutrition (underweight prevalence) in children (0-6 years) and Low Birth Weight @2% per annum and reduce anaemia among young children (6-59 months), women and adolescent girls @3% per annum across the country. The major works undertaken under this Abhiyaan are ensuring convergence with various other programmes; Information Technology enabled Common Application Software for strengthening service delivery and interventions; Community Mobilization and Awareness Advocacy leading to Jan Andolan- to educate the people on nutritional aspects; Capacity Building of Frontline Functionaries and incentivizing States/ UTs for achieving goals.
