Field Exchange: Special Focus on Nutrition-Sensitive Programming

This special edition is rich with field experiences and relevant peer-reviewed research that provide insights into the current state of knowledge and action for nutrition-sensitive programming. Key issues that emerge include: 1) remaining questions around whether, when, and how to work multi-sectorally for nutrition; 2) the need for more rigorous research on nutrition-sensitive interventions, including appropriate research design and indicators; and 3) the work to be done on defining nutrition-sensitive actions to ensure they are usefully operationalized for government and development practitioners.
