Timeline Description

The loan is only the second free-standing nutrition loan financed by the World Bank Group, following the 1976 Nutrition Research and Development Project (P006273) to Brazil.

Detail Description
In the years prior to the signing of this loan, nearly two-thirds of Indonesia's population was considered malnourished. The Bank Group viewed malnutrition in this and other developing countries as "a constraint on human productive capacity that hinders efforts to achieve national development goals" (Indonesia: Appraisal of a Nutrition Development Project, pg. i). The Bank Group's first standalone nutrition sector loan to Indonesia had a number of objectives: strengthen research units in the government's Ministries of Health, Education, and Agriculture; direct nutrition action programs; test alternative methods of nutrition education and expand training facilities and programs; and prepare a national food and nutrition program.
