The politics of reducing malnutrition: building commitment and accelerating progress
In recent years, political discourse on the challenge of undernutrition has increased markedly at both national and international levels and led to stated commitments on the part of many national governments, international organisations and donors. We now fi nd greater harmonisation among stakeholders with regard both to their understanding of the main causes of malnutrition, as well as the various options for addressing it. The core question that we address in this paper is: “how can enabling environments and processes be cultivated, sustained and ultimately translated into impact on the ground”? This research brief was based on paper 4 of The Lancet series on Maternal and Child Nutrition which was partly funded by Transform Nutrition.
