Improving Nutrition through Agriculture – What Have We Learned and How Can We Support SDG Outcomes
International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), Research Program on Agriculture for Nutrition and Health (A4NH), United States of America
The CGIAR's Agriculture for Nutrition and Health (A4NH) Programme, begun in 2012, was designed to better leverage agriculture interventions for improved nutrition. Since then, significant progress has been made in understanding the agriculture pathways for improved nutrition and evaluating the contributions of agriculture interventions to nutrition and health impacts. Multiple pathways for improving nutrition rely on women's empowerment. In addition, much has been learned on how to augment agriculture interventions with nutrition education.
