    The WFP has welcomed an agreement by finance officials from Central America and the Dominican Republic giving “top priority” to eradicating child malnutrition in their poverty reduction strategies, as a key step in fighting poverty. “Chronic child malnutrition is unacceptable on ethical and humanitarian grounds, but also for social, economic and political reasons,” WFP Regional Director Pedro Medrano Rojas said of the accord signed March 19 by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) Governors for the countries concerned.
