Innovation Lab for Nutrition - Asia FY2015 Annual Report

Date Published: 
February 10, 2016

The Nutrition Innovation Lab pursues research on how agriculture can be leveraged to achieve improved nutrition, how multiple sectors of policy and program activity can be more effectively integrated to achieve improvements in maternal and child nutrition at scale, and what role is played by neglected biological mechanisms (such as exposure to dietary aflatoxins or to open defecation) in impairing nutrition. An external review was undertaken of the Nutrition Innovation Lab’s work in Asia (as well as in Africa) during Fiscal Year 2015. The review report offered considerable praise for the research and capacity building work undertaken in Asia, and it offered constructive suggestions for enhancements which were quickly incorporated into the Nutrition Innovation Lab-Asia’s activities.
