Webinar Description

Transform Nutrition is a consortium of five international research and development partners funded by the UK Department for International Development. It’s aim is to help stakeholders in the most-affected countries – policy-makers, civil society and business leaders – to use quality research to address undernutrition. This webinar featured two researchers who, as part of the Transform Nutrition consortium, have carried out research on different aspects of undernutrition.

John Hoddinott, from Cornell University, reviewed the research landscape surrounding chronic undernutrition and the implications for nutrition sensitive interventions, drawing on work undertaken for DFID by the Transform Nutrition Research Consortium.

Nick Nisbett and Jess Gordon, from the Institute for Development Studies (IDS), presented the process and results of a major mixed-methods evaluation led by IDS which measured child nutrition outcomes in three DFID livelihoods programmes – the Chars Livelihoods Programme, Shiree/EEP and the Urban Partnerships for Poverty Reduction Programme (UPPR).
