Key Steps for Nutrition-Sensitive Social Protection

Secure Nutrition and the World Bank Group hosted author and IFPRI Senior Researcher Dr. Harold Alderman to outline the logic for prioritizing nutrition-sensitive programs in the current development landscape. Dr. Alderman discussed how safety nets—which support some 1.9 billion people worldwide—can help achieve global nutrition and poverty targets. The presentation concluded that nutrition- sensitive social and behavior change programming can impact malnutrition, but requires investment and coordination, necessitating the strengthening of health and nutrition services and proper training of providers.
