Strengthening the impact of poverty reduction on nutrition

Policy Brief
Subtitle: 
[Policy brief 9]

Declining poverty rates in Bangladesh have been accompanied by a significant increase in people’s purchasing power, improving their access to basic foods. However, contrary to the long-term trend, recent drops in income poverty have not resulted in equally strong progress in nutritional outcomes. To maximise the impact of poverty reduction on nutrition, interventions need to be targeted and integrated across all relevant sectors, including agriculture, health and education. Strengthening the institutional setup for multisectoral coordination will be key.
