  8. Scalable: Potential to perform as well or better after expanding in scope or size and/or being transported to other regions.

Solutions Standards:

Applicants should demonstrate impact in at least one of the following areas:

  1. Ensure pregnant and lactating women have the best nutrition and sanitation conditions in undernourished populations to reduce stunting in the first 1000 days,  the risk of low-birth-weight neonates and adverse perinatal outcomes. 
  2. Ensure children under 5 years old do not suffer from hunger and ensure they receive adequate nutrients to support their mental and physical development.

Benefits:

The winning solution will receive:

  1. A US$50,000 grant from RB.
