The nexus between agriculture and nutrition

Do growth patterns and conditional factors matter?

This paper seeks to provide an overview of the complex and dynamic relationship between nutrition and growth, examine how different growth patterns lead to different nutritional outcomes, and identify the factors that influence the magnitude of this relationship. It aims to offer researchers insights on areas for future research and analysis and to provide policymakers with knowledge regarding potential development strategies and investment policies that will increase the likelihood of positive nutritional outcomes.
