Agriculture, health, and nutrition

Towards conceptualizing the linkages

Strengthening the policy and programmatic links between agriculture and health and nutrition requires a means of seeing how their myriad links fit together.

While this framework can be applied at the global or national level, here it is focused on households and individuals, given that improving individual welfare is the ultimate goal of public policy.
