This costs the country up to $400 million every year. That is the dollar cost to a human tragedy, according to a new report by UNICEF, the World Food Program, and Cambodia’s Council for Agricultural and Rural Development. The price of malnutrition – $250-400 million a year – is around 2 percent of the country’s total annual GDP. This is money that could go towards improving roads, power, and schools.
