From agriculture to nutrition

Book
Subtitle: 
[Pathways, Synergies and Outcomes]

The report seeks to analyze what has been learned about how agricultural interventions influence nutrition outcomes in low- and middle-income countries, focusing on the target populations of the millennium development goals-people living on less than a dollar a day. It also sets out to synthesize lessons from past efforts to improve the synergies between agriculture and nutrition outcomes. The report identifies a number of developments in agriculture and nutrition that have transformed the context in which nutrition is affected by agriculture. These developments have considerable practical significance for nutrition-related agricultural programs including the design of those programs that aim to improve nutritional outcomes. Finally, the report draws a number of practical conclusions that shed light on how agricultural interventions and investments may improve nutrition outcomes in low- and middle-income countries.
