News Deeply published an op-ed by IFPRI’s Bart Minten and Kalle Hirvonen, on the challenges of malnutrition in Ethiopia. In the wake of improved economic conditions, the country’s nutritional statistics show an increase in consumption of sugary foods, as nutritious foods have become more expensive. Left without additional investments to make nutritious foods affordable, this issue could bring, “malnourishment to rural Ethiopia and obesity to its cities,” the authors said.
