Published on

Transform Nutrition is a consortium of international research partners. Led by the International Food Policy Research Institute, other members include: Institute of Development Studies; Institute of International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh; Public Health Foundation of India; Save the Children; and University of Nairobi.

Over five years, from 2012 to 2017, Transform Nutrition will contribute nutrition-relevant evidence to accelerate reduction in undernutrition. The focus of the research will be the highest burden regions of South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, specifically Bangladesh, India, Ethiopia, and Kenya. At the centre of the research is the window of opportunity- a child’s first 1000 days from conception to 24 months- when interventions can have the greatest impact.

  6. 6. Transform Nutrition’s Theory of Change OUTCOMES Accelerated reduction in undernutrition Transformed thinking Nutrition moved higher up and action for development agenda undernutrition reduction PURPOSE Unlock puzzles to transform thinking and OUTPUTS action on nutrition Actionable evidence on scaling direct interventions Increased profile of nutrition in public Strong network policy through Improved capacity to of nutrition maximise nutrition sensitivity champions communication of indirect interventions processes Developing and sustaining a robust enabling environment
  7. 7. Core Research Pillars / Questions1. How can direct nutrition-specific interventions targeted to the “window of opportunity” be appropriately prioritized, implemented, scaled up and sustained in different settings?2. How can indirect interventions (social protection, agriculture, and women’s empowerment) have a greater impact on improving nutrition?3. How can an enabling environment be promoted, and existing and enhanced political and economic resources be used most effectively to improve nutrition?4. Cross-cutting themes: governance, inclusion, fragility
  8. 8. Transform Nutrition’s Research Framework Scaling up Making indirect Promoting an enabling nutrition-specific interventions more environment for actions effectively nutrition-sensitive nutrition Weak incentives, Low issue salience, weak leadership Weak commitment andGovernance institutions and from state and civil society and lack coordination capacity to realize infrastructure can of accountability mechanisms make win-win solutions undermine scaling up. environments unsupportive Gender, economic, caste, Social exclusion undermines ethnic, geographic factors efforts to reduce disparities in, Inclusion Social exclusion not recognized or exclude large population and improve status of, prioritized by policy actors groups from direct underlying preconditions for services nutrition security.
