6 June 2013, ReliefWeb – "The World Bank Group projects that it will nearly triple direct financing for maternal and early childhood nutrition programs in developing countries in 2013-14 to $600 million, up from $230 million in 2011-12. An estimated 90 percent of this new funding ($540 million) will come from the International Development Association (IDA), the Bank’s fund for the poorest countries. The announcement comes in the lead-up to the Nutrition for Growth High-Level Event on June 8 in London ahead of the G-8 Summit in Lough Erne, Northern Ireland, in late June."
