Farm-level pathways to improved nutritional status (English)

Global, national and local policies and programs for agricultural development arerecurrently justified based on their alleged role in improving food and nutrition security.However, strikingly little evidence is available to prove that a direct, household-level linkbetween agricultural production and improved nutrition exists. The objective of thisspecial issue is to systematically and empirically test, using data from Africa and SouthAsia, whether a relationship between household agricultural production and nutrition canbe found. Overall, the studies in this special issue support the hypothesis that householdagricultural production has direct and important linkages with dietary patterns andnutrition.
