Value Chains for Nutrition in South Asia: Who Delivers, How and to Whom?

7 February 2018 13:00–14:30

Institute of Development Studies
Library Road

This seminar sees the launch of the IDS Bulletin on Value Chains for Nutrition in South Asia.

This Bulletin presents the findings from four years of research developed under the research programme Leveraging Agriculture for Nutrition in South Asia (LANSA). It has been written by the LANSA consortium of research partners, from different countries (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, UK, and USA).

It is the first attempt at at nutrition-oriented whole chain research in South Asia. Articles include mandatory fortification, public distribution, social enterprises, and private business models, amongst others, to assess different scenarios for better sustained delivery of nutrient-rich foods. It provides evidence on what is working and what is not; policy recommendations for the role and use of market-based interventions for nutrition-related challenges; and suggests a new agenda for research
