Accelerating Reductions in Undernutrition: What can nutrition governance tell us?

Abstract

In order to accelerate progress on undernutrition reduction we need to understand how the governance of nutrition programmes leads to successful outcomes. Based on evidence from six countries: Bangladesh, Brazil, Ethiopia, India, Peru and Zambia, this briefing informs government leaders, policymakers and key stakeholders of the Scaling Up Nutrition movement (1) how they can better mobilise political commitment for undernutrition reduction and (2) how they can facilitate cooperation across national and local institutions, and among nutritionists, civil society and the private sector.
