Nutrition Sensitive Value Chains: Theory, Progress, and Open Questions

To fight the double burden of malnutrition and achieve SGD2, how do we deliver more nutritious foods to populations? This paper argues that we need to improve food systems by improving value chains for micronutrient-rich foods. The study uses a consumer lens to look at value chain interventions that could lead to improved intakes of micronutrient-rich foods, reviews the present literature on the types of value chain assessments, interventions, and initiatives in place, and identifies potential future directions for value chain activities.
