Pathways to Better Nutrition Case Studies Dissemination Event

Event Location

4 pillars of the PBN study

SPRING and USAID held this global dissemination event to share the results of SPRING's Pathways to Better Nutrition (PBN) Case Studies. The event took place at 1 p.m. on July 28, 2016 at the JW Marriott Hotel in Washington, D.C.

SPRING's PBN case studies provide new evidence of the importance of good nutrition to both human and economic development and the critical role good governance and policy play in creating momentum for nutrition. The case studies explore how nutrition-related activities are prioritized and funded in Nepal and Uganda by stakeholders across multiple sectors. The study findings identify concrete drivers of change (barriers and enablers) in the prioritization of nutrition and its funding.

The event included a discussion with experts in multi-sectoral nutrition planning, governance, and financing on how stakeholders can use this type of research to advocate within ministries, donor and UN agencies, and the private sector for better nutrition policies and funding.

Speakers included:

  • Helen Connolly, American Institutes for Research,
  • Mary D’Alimonte, Results for Development,
  • Patrizia Fracassi, Scaling Up Nutrition Movement,
  • Madhu Kumar Marasini, National Planning Commission, Nepal,
  • Ssansa Mugenyi, Office of the Prime Minister, Uganda,
  • Amanda Pomeroy-Stevens, SPRING Project,
  • Patrick Webb, Nutrition Innovation Lab
