Designing Nutrition-Sensitive Agriculture Investments: Checklist and guidance for program formulation

  • PREVIEW
  • READ ARTICLE
  • OPEN PDF

ISSN

Current food systems are increasingly being challenged to provide adequate, safe, diversified and nutrient-dense food amidst the increasing constraints of resource scarcity, climate change, inequitable distribution and unsustainable production and consumption patterns. The FAO’s Nutrition Division (ESN) and Investment Center (TCI) has launched a guidance checklist to- wards achieving one of the targets in the Framework of Action of the 2nd International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2) that emphasizes the importance of “reviewing national policies and investments and integrating nutrition objectives into food and agricultural policy, program design and implementation.”

There is a growing commitment to ensuring that investments in food systems are “nutrition-sensitive,” but for many it is not clear what this entails in terms of program design and implementation. The checklist and guidance document can be used as a tool for improving nutrition through agricultural and food systems.

The aim of the guide is to assist in identifying creative, unique and sustainable solutions that help families improve their nutrition by making the most out of available resources. The checklist provides 10 key recommendations developed in consultation with a wide range of sectors. These recommendations have been designed around the first phase of a programming cycle – namely, situation assessment, program design, and program review. Each recommendation is followed by a list of questions to help the practitioner find locally relevant solutions, and provides tips and additional resources. This is going to be a valuable tool for anyone working at the community level in agriculture, but it also makes excellent reading for those of us that are interested in implementation science.
