With almost 60% of Namibians not being able to afford a sufficiently healthy diet, the World Food Day 2022 “Leave no one behind!" is more important than ever for Namibia.

NAFSAN will therefore join this year’s event in Uukwiyuushona Village, in the Oshana Region, while continuing to advocate for a Sugar Tax to encourage healthier diets, while also contributing to a Basic Income Grant for all Namibians to become a reality soon.

NAFSAN has joined celebrations and awareness raising on Earth Day today (22 April) – hereby bringing attention to risks around current plans for fossil fuel extraction in Namibia, which may seem a bit anachronistic in the age of Climate Change.

In early 2022, NAFSAN in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Social Services and other stakeholders, conducted the SUN Joint Annual Assessment (2021) a summary of which – together with progress of other countries – will be available on the website of the Scaling-Up-Nutrition (SUN) Movement later this year.
