Child and Adolescent Nutrition in Indonesia’s Provinces: Findings and Implications

14 December 2022

More and more young people in Indonesia suffer from undernutrition, stunting, micro-nutrient deficiency, and obesity. Significant disparities exist in health and nutrition status across provinces in Indonesia.

This webinar reviewed the results of nutrition and health studies conducted by 12 provincial study teams supported by a technical assistance project from the Asian Development Bank (ADB).

The webinar also presented and discussed the results of the studies and explored possible policy interventions specific to different provinces.

This event was part of the Indonesia Resident Mission's flagship webinar series, “Indonesia Development Talk.” The series showcased insights that can help Indonesia address pressing development and macroeconomic challenges.
