On Monday 23rd April, LIDC was delighted to welcome over 30 people to our Action against Stunting Summit. The Summit brought together academic researchers, policy makers, and the civil society for a day of panel discussions and debates about the role of disruptive research in global child nutrition. In addition, the event identified leverage points where research findings could inform policy and practice.

After much deliberation, the winners of the London International Development Centre’s (LIDC) global development photography competition have been announced.

Kevin Queenan, a research assistant from the Royal Veterinary College, was awarded first place for his striking image of a Maasai Moran at a slaughter slab.

Now in its second year, the ‘Lens on Development’ competition is open to all students, staff and alumni of LIDC’s member colleges. This year’s theme was global development challenges.
