Some studies suggest businesses in developing countries together lose up to $850B a year due to malnutrition-related low productivity. Recent estimates suggest $11B will be needed annually for nutrition investments if we are to meet 2030 nutrition targets: wrld.bg/79hP50J68R2

A child born at start of 2020 was less likely to become malnourished than one born at turn of the Millennium. Investment, innovation and commitment saw #malnutrition fall. Yet despite the progress, malnutrition is still blighting lives around the world: wrld.bg/3Bqx50J68i1

In #DaresSalaam, less than 40% h/holds are est. to have access to waste collection services😟. In #Tanzania urban areas, 80-90% of MSW is not collected becoz service is unaffordable for many; waste mgt network is poor; urban planning is limited: wrld.bg/xUvn50JeRSX ☘️

Managing Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) 🚮 effectively and in an environmentally sound manner is critical 2 minimizing environmental + health impacts. In most #Africa countries, only 30–60% of MSW is collected, leading to high related risks😔: wrld.bg/77gH50JeRSJ ☘️ #Tanzania

2012 estimates show #Tanzania generated 2,425 metric tons of municipal solid waste 🚮 (MSW) per day; more than #Kenya (2,000 tons) and #Uganda (1,179 tons). Total MSW generation in the country expected to reach ~12,000 metric tons per day by 2025🤨: wrld.bg/ljNL50JeRSm ☘️

Encouragingly, by the end of 2021, schools had reopened in many countries. But nearly one out of 4 education systems were still closed and many systems had reopened only partially. 300 million children still need to be brought back to school safely: wrld.bg/zShi50J4WQT

In late 2020, WBG estimated that a 7-month absence from school would increase the share of students in #LearningPoverty from 53% to 63%. An additional 7M students would drop out of school. The effects on marginalized minorities and girls will be worse: wrld.bg/te8q50J4WJJ

By the end of 2021, well above 200 school days were lost—that’s about a school year and a half. This prolonged interruption in learning could have grave long lasting effects, particularly in middle income and poor countries: wrld.bg/tNw450J4WFE

Govts across the globe will spend about $5 trillion on K-12 education this year. But unless they get all children back to school, keep them in class, and recover the central elements of learning, this generation could lose 2X–3X that amount in earnings: wrld.bg/YS2450J4WtR

#VaccineHesitancy is different from vaccine #resistance. Vaccine hesitant individuals are unsure about getting the #COVID-19 vaccine and often have specific concerns that can be addressed with tailored messaging delivered by a trusted messenger: wrld.bg/6rzy50J4UXy

While #vaccines are one of the key interventions to reduce the severity of #COVID-19 and help countries reopen their economies, a fundamental challenge has limited the impact of this major scientific advance: the #hesitancy of millions to take the shot: wrld.bg/n7S350J4UOJ

Navigating our way out of this new food price volatility crisis depends on national policies and global cooperation. We must avoid the mistakes of the 2007-2008 global #foodcrisis when countries restricted food exports and exacerbated price increases: wrld.bg/WRiF50J3LKz
