Nutrition Economics: Principles and Policy Applications

The multidisciplinary and multisectoral capacity to tackle hunger and malnutrition problems remains a major stumbling block in setting the nutrition policy agenda, analyzing policy options, designing intervention programs, implementing interventions, monitoring and evaluation of the programs’ costs and benefits, and the evidence-to-action process. While there is a large body of literature on the economic and public policy analysis related to nutritional challenges, this information is not synthesized, and is certainly not accessible in a single collection. This book is a modest attempt to fill this gap.
