Preface
 
This manual aims to provide
practical guidance to field workers in order to maximise thenutritional impact of food security & livelihoods (FSL) interventions
. This requires the systematicuse of a ‘nutrition lens’ at each step of the project cycle and a close collaboration between sectors.The manual has its roots in ACF International strategy 2010-2015

and the FSL strategic outline for2011-2015

, and embodies the mandate of the organisation to fight hunger and to centre its effortson undernutrition. It is also in line with the current international movement to put maternal andchild nutrition at the forefront of the agenda to address the complex crisis of undernutrition in theperspective of the 2015 Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).This manual also gives us the opportunity to dispel the myth that economic growth and agriculturaldevelopment in particular equals improved nutritional status. Increasing agricultural productivityand/or increasing income do not necessarily translate into improved nutrition. The relationshipbetween growth and nutrition is non linear and is affected by many other factors such as status of women, health, infrastructures and cultural norms and beliefs, to name a few.This manual, however, is not about integration between the different technical sectors (FSL,Nutrition & Health, Mental Health & Care Practices (MHCP), Water, Sanitation & Hygiene)
 per se
butaims to mainstream nutrition into the standard FSL activities and practices, by increasingcollaboration between sectors. It aims to raise awareness of ACF staff and other humanitarianpractitioners on the impact they can have on nutrition by implementing nutrition-sensitiveinterventions and by promoting adequate nutrition practices.The basic elements for this manual were collected from ACF staff, representatives of other NonGovernmental Organisations (NGOs) and the United Nations (UN) agencies, and an extensiveliterature review in March and April 2011.
