World Bank Launches SecureNutrition Platform
In May 2012, The World Bank Group launched the SecureNutrition Platform to bridge operational knowledge gaps between agriculture, food security, and nutrition, while focusing on the following themes:
- Measurement: How can food security and nutrition be accurately and consistently measured to inform policy and programs?
- Delivery: How can we deliver interventions through the agriculture sector that will have positive impacts on nutrition? How can we minimize possible negative impacts that agriculture interventions may have on nutrition?
- Knowledge: What information exists on policies and programs linking food security, poverty reduction, agricultural production, and nutrition outcomes? How can we increase, facilitate and support access to this information to maximize the impact of policies and programs?
