This paper refutes the assertion in the previous paper, Multi-sectoral nutrition planning: a post-mortem, that nutrition planning was a failure. The author argues that multisectoral analysis and multisectoral implementation are two very different things, though Field’s article discusses them together. Berg says that just because malnutrition is caused by many factors, it does not necessarily need to be solved by one overarching solution. He also argues that a good food and nutrition system must have consumers as the central focus.
