Women’s Empowerment and Nutrition: What does the Evidence Tell Us?

Transform Nutrition, a consortium of development partners funded by the UK and led by IFPRI, recently released a 2-page brief on current efforts to link gender and nutrition. In particular, the brief looks at the impact of cash transfers, microfinance programs, and agriculture interventions on women. A set of six recommendations is included, focusing especially on next steps in research on women and nutrition in the development context.
