Agriculture-nutrition linkages: Linking agriculture and food security to nutrition improvement

This desk review aims to providing insights and evidence on the linkages between programmes and interventions in agricultural development and food security and nutrition improvement of vulnerable groups.

The desk review was undertaken as a first step in an exercise in which in two pilot countries the possibilities for actually linking nutritional objectives to programmes in food security development were explored. 

The desk review provides examples on how organizations have tried and sometimes succeeded to achieve impacts on nutrition through agricultural development programmes. The field explorations have been carried out in collaboration with the Netherlands Embassies in Ethiopia and Bangladesh.
