Addressing undernutrition in the context of urbanisation in low- and middle-income countries

Abstract

Urbanisation presents a set of challenges and opportunities for tackling undernutrition in low- and middle-income countries where DFID works. This evidence review considers the scale of urbanisation in these countries, appraises what works in urban settings and how this context differs from the rural context with regard to nutrition programming, and identifies the main evidence gaps. The report gives contextual information describing the projected increase in urbanisation and urban nutrition statistics. Urban-specific diet and food security considerations are described.
