  • 5. The agriculture-nutrition disconnect 5 • “Income growth drives declines in undernutrition: estimates suggest a 10% increase in income leads to a 5-6% decrease in stunting levels (Ruel and Alderman 2013). But income growth cannot be relied on and only addresses part of the problem.” (p. 5) [italics mine] • ‘”which agricultural practices, policies and interventions can make a positive impact on the nutritional status of vulnerable rural households?’” (p. 9) http://agridiet.ucc.ie/wp- content/uploads/sites/2/2013/10/AgriDiet- GlobalReview-FINAL-22-10-13.pdf
  • 6. 6 RCT = randomised controlled trials Meeker, J. & Haddad, L. (2013) A State-of-the-Art Review of Agriculture-Nutrition Linkages, AgDiet Position Paper, Dublin, p. 9
  • 7. Meeker & Haddad’s key priority questions (2013, p. 10) › We need to find out the following from these actors: › Farm household members: - What are the key agriculture decisions? Who makes them? - How much do nutrition considerations factor into these decisions? Why or why not? - What are the knowledge, attitude and practices of different farm household individuals with respect to nutrition? - What do farmers think are the key incentives and barriers to considering nutrition? What are the important trade-offs and information gaps? › With other stakeholders in the farm system: - How much do they know about nutrition? - What are their views about how much agriculture should do for nutrition? - What do they think could be done? What do they see as the trade-offs? - What needs to happen to make agriculture more pro-nutrition? 7
