    Maximizing nutrition in livestock
    A guidance note on impact pathways for mainstreaming nutrition based on case studies from Eswatini and Zimbabwe

    The question of how to better incorporate nutrition into the livestock sector is a challenge shared by many policymakers and programme managers at regional, national and local levels, due to a lack of proven methodological tools setting out how to effectively achieve this. In response to this challenge, Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), with support from Action Contre la Faim and World Vision, has developed an innovative stepwise approach that combines theory and practice by establishing a theory of change and associated impact pathways. This work was carried out as part of a consultative process involving expert stakeholders from Eswatini and Zimbabwe. The results obtained demonstrate the utility of this methodological process to help policy makers and technicians formulate and evaluate nutrition sensitive policies, programmes and interventions.

    Maximizing nutrition in the crop production sector in Ghana
    In brief

    The crop sector is the largest of all the food sectors, providing sustenance for all 7.8 billion people in the world, as well as 1.3 billion of the 2.5 billion agricultural jobs worldwide. The sector has traditionally focused on providing calories and reducing famine by maximizing productivity. This choice has come to the detriment of production diversity, resulting in many consumers being unable to access the full range of crops, including fruits and vegetables, needed for a healthy diet. Integrating nutrition into the crop production system remains critical to addressing the unacceptably high global prevalence of malnutrition and micronutrient deficiencies. However, uncertainty over what practical approach to adopt remains a challenge for policymakers and practitioners at all levels due to a lack of proven methodological tools. To help address this challenge the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, with support from World Vision, has developed an innovative stepwise approach that combines theory and practice by establishing a theory of change and associated impact pathways. This work was carried out as part of a consultative process involving expert stakeholders from Ghana. The results obtained demonstrate the utility of this methodological process in helping political decision-makers and technicians formulate and evaluate nutrition-sensitive policies, programmes and interventions.

    Maximizing nutrition in the fisheries and aquaculture sector in Kenya
    In brief

    The existing and potential contribution of capture fisheries and aquaculture to a country’s food security and nutrition can be significant. Fish represents a primary source of protein and essential nutrients, and there is growing recognition of its nutritional and health-promoting qualities. Despite the importance of fish as a resource, to date, there has been limited attention given to the sector’s role in contributing to food security and nutrition strategies at the national level. However, uncertainty over what practical approach to adopt remains a challenge for policymakers and practitioners at all levels due to a lack of proven methodological tools. To help address this challenge the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, with support from World Vision, has developed an innovative stepwise approach that combines theory and practice by establishing a theory of change and associated impact pathways. This work was carried out as part of a consultative process involving expert stakeholders from Kenya. The results obtained demonstrate the utility of this methodological process in helping political decision-makers and field officers formulate and evaluate nutrition-sensitive policies, programmes and interventions.
