Undernourished, but obese - The double Burden of Malnutrition

A strange phenomenon is increasingly observed in the developing world: Undernutrition and obesity exist simultaneously – sometimes even within the same household or individual. This project will show that obesity and undernutrition aren’t simply two issues that have to be addressed in parallel; it will demonstrate that they are linked in a way that has massive ramifications for the future of the affected countries and the development aid. The journalist will travel to the roots of the problem - and to the people who try to tackle it.
