OverviewResearch Activities
The Nutrition Innovation Lab works in Bangladesh and Cambodia to implement operations research of direct relevance to Feed the Future’s Learning Agenda. The focus of these country studies is on unanswered questions regarding appropriate investments in agriculture for improving nutrition and diet quality. Two of the main questions posed by USAID’s Learning Agenda are: a) What have been the impacts of different approaches linking Agriculture, Nutrition and Health on dietary diversity and nutritional status (i.e. geographic co-location of programs, integration of interventions, combinations)?; and b) Have programs to increase farmers’ incomes resulted in improved nutrition when not coupled with nutrition programming?

The two questions Nutrition Innovation Lab is seeking to answer in Cambodia are:

a) What have been the impacts of different approaches linking Agriculture, Nutrition and Health on dietary diversity and nutritional status (i.e. geographic co-location of programs, integration of interventions, combinations)?

b) Have programs to increase farmers’ incomes resulted in improved nutrition when not coupled with nutrition programming?
