Is Reliable Water Access The Solution To Undernutrition?

This paper aims to connect the dots and review the literature available on the linkages between irrigation and food security, improved nutrition, and health. Based on the limited evidence available, six factors that should be taken into account are identified. These factors, developed with a focus on sub-Saharan Africa, strive to address nutrition and gender gaps in irrigation interventions.
