The UNSCN shares findings from a 2013 review of country level programming in nutrition sensitive agriculture
The importance of the agriculture sector for nutrition has become increasingly apparent and many partner agencies and organizations have embarked on programmes to make agriculture more nutrition sensitive. In March 2014, the United Nations Standing Committee on Nutrition (UNSCN) launched a report to share the findings from a 2013 review of country level programming in nutrition sensitive agriculture.
This report provides a consolidated overview of these initiatives and aims to raise awareness of nutrition sensitive agriculture. The report includes;
- A background on terminology and research to date
- An overview of resilience building, women’s empowerment and improving nutrition knowledge and practices
- Basic information on common programming approaches to nutrition-sensitive agriculture
- Specific examples from multiple stakeholders programming experience in nutrition-sensitive agriculture including the UN system, research institutions, donors and international NGO’s.
