The DFID Programme to Accelerate Improved Nutrition for the Extreme Poor in Bangladesh aims to improve nutrition outcomes for children, mothers and adolescent girls by integrating the delivery of a number of nutrition-specific (or direct) interventions with the livelihood support provided to extremely poor people by three existing programmes in Bangladesh. These three programmes are the Chars Livelihoods Programme (CLP), the Economic Empowerment of the Poorest Programme (EEP) and the Urban Partnership for Poverty Reduction Programme (UPPR). This report evaluates the impacts of these programmes on the nutritional status of children under the age of two, and aims to assess the cost effectiveness (value for money analysis) of integrating direct and indirect interventions in the three livelihood programmes. Both the full report and executive summary are available.
