This upcoming webinar is co-hosted by Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Nutrition and USAID Advancing Nutrition. Designed to inform and engage stakeholders, this webinar is part of a series that will cover research conducted by the Innovation Lab for Nutrition and its stakeholders over the past ten years. During each webinar, panelists will present findings from their research, discuss policy implications of these findings, discuss what needs to be done to better link research to practice, and identify research gaps for future consideration.
Many factors combine to shape diets and maternal and child health. In this webinar, we review recent research from the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Nutrition regarding the role of markets and infrastructure in mitigating nutritional risks. We focus specific attention on findings from Bangladesh, Nepal and Uganda, examining correlates and drivers of dietary diversity, linear growth and weight gain, and nutritional resilience.
