Interventions that move key species with potential to the left
    7. 7. Conclusions • The “tail” presents opportunities to improve the diets, incomes and resilience of mothers, children and their households • Need to build on local diversification strategies • Local markets are essential • Need to improve functioning of markets • Take into account the diversity of species traded in markets and build on it as source of food and income
