Re: Innovations in agriculture to improve nutrition. Share your success stories

Krishna Sannigrahi

There is comparatively little current research on indirect effects of agriculture on nutrition, or the effect of policies or governance, rather than technical interventions. Most research is focused on under-nutrition and small farmer households, and few studies target consumers generally, urban populations, or nutrition-related non-communicable diseases. There is very little work on the cost-effectiveness of agricultural interventions. The answer to addressing these challenges starts from addressing leakages in official spending, monitoring of progress and creating linkages among different agencies in several on-going nutrition schemes and projects. Agriculture and Nutrition challenges can be best addressed only after a complete achievement of desired behavioural change goals which somehow have still not reached the lower strata of the Indian society. The maximum challenge to address this problem emerges from the unorganized programmes with the lack of technical expertise knowledge disrupting. Building more support for open data with published case studies in the agriculture and nutrition sectors. This will include starting and continuing conversations with more people in more organisations and from more countries around the world on how thematic networks can really unlock the benefits of open data across the world. Ideally we need to be more focused on agriculture, funding, global policies, malnutrition and nutrition.
