Date Published: 
November 1, 2014

This technical brief lays out the rationale for placing higher policy priority on investments in agriculture and food chain developments for nutrition, including the generation of new evidence of what works best, and presents a conceptual framework to help build understanding of the various entry points for policy action across the food system. It represents the first in a series of technical briefs prepared by the Global Panel on Agriculture and Food Systems for Nutrition to disseminate information useful to inform policy, programme and investment to benefit nutrition, particularly among vulnerable mothers and children.
