The main objective was to present the results and national report of the Cost of Hunger in Rwanda. This mission was carried-out jointly with the Africa Union Commission, represented by the Commissioner of Social Affairs and the COHA Focal Point at AUC. The 3rd National Food and Nutritional Summit is regarded as the most relevant gathering of practitioners and experts to share on knowledge and best practices to address child malnutrition, as a cornerstone for the inclusive development.  The summit presented the ideal venue to present the study, as it demonstrated the Social and Economic Impact of child under nutrition to society, in-line with the main theme of the event. The COHA was presented in a key-note panel with the African Union, ECA and Representatives from the Ministries of Health, Education and Agriculture, in the 1st session of the conference.
