WASHINGTON, July 9, 2018 - The World Bank’s Board of Executive Directors today approved the following project:

Djibouti - Towards Zero Stunting in Djibouti

IDA GRANT: US$ 15 million equivalent

Project ID: P164164

Project Description: The project will reduce stunting among children in Djibouti. The project will focus on children under five, as well as pregnant and lactating women, with a specific focus on the 1,000-day “window of opportunity” (pregnancy through the second birthday) before stunting becomes largely irreversible. The project will also focus on adolescent girls.
