Value Chains and Nutrition: A Framework to Support the Identification, Design and Evaluation of Interventions

An output from the A4NH March, 2014 meeting on “Developing a theory based framework to support the monitoring and evaluation of value chains for nutrition,” this paper develops and explains a framework based on program-theory concepts to support the identification, design and evaluation of value chain interventions for nutrition. The structure of the strategy is based on the pathways through which VCN interventions can be expected to improve nutrition, including three main channels linking the demand and supply for nutritious foods.
