Leveraging multi-sectoral programming to improve health and nutrition has gained attention over recent years. Collaboration between sectors has the potential to address many of the root causes of malnutrition. However, multi-sectoral interventions can be complex and difficult to evaluate, and outcomes can be challenging to measure. In this upcoming webinar, speakers will examine data on multi-sectoral programming from Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Nutrition focus countries including Nepal, Uganda, and Bangladesh. They will also discuss approaches and best practices for developing evidence-based interventions across agriculture, nutrition, and health, and will explore implications and future directions for multi-sectoral strategies.
