Hunger and Undernutrition Reduction:Overcoming Disconnects and Neglect
Lawrence HaddadInstitute of Development Studies
 
 
Outline
Connecting agriculture andundernutrition
Overcoming neglect of hunger andundernutrition
 
Why doesn
t agriculture do more toreduce undernutrition?
“  
In terms of the productive sectors, agricultural growth 
tends to be a more integral part of nutrition-sensitive development than nonagricultural growth, but the effect of agricultural growth on nutrition is conditional upon the size of the sector, the extent to which food insecurity is a problem, and the extent to which agricultural growth delivers increased food availability. The main exception to this statement is that the result does not appear to apply in India.
