This presentation was given in Washington DC at a USAID tri-Innovation lab event: Advancing the Global Food Security Strategy: Insights from three Innovation Labs on food security, gender and nutrition. It centers possibilities emerging from new data, but stresses the need for further research so outcomes are more conclusive.
Presented at the Hidden Hunger Conference in Stuttgart, Germany, this presentation discusses amino acids in relation to stunting and malnutrition.
This presentation was given at the Annual meeting for the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Livestock, and contains a great deal of information and statistics on global nutrition, stunting rates, double burdens of malnutrition, and aflatoxin exposure.

Women's education level amplifies the effects of a livelihoods-based intervention on household wealth, child diet, and child growth in rural Nepal.
Many organizations seek to alleviate poverty in the developing world, often focusing their interventions on women. The role, status, and education of women are fundamentally important facets of development. Thus, understanding the interaction of women’s educational level and the response to interventions is important. Therefore, we examined the impact of educational level of household adults on responses to a livestock-based community intervention.
The promotion of livestock production is widely believed to support enhanced diet quality and child nutrition, but the empirical evidence for this causal linkage remains narrow and ambiguous. This study examines whether adoption of improved dairy cow breeds is linked to farm-level outcomes that translate into household-level benefits including improved child nutrition outcomes in Uganda.
