Social protection pathways to nutrition: synthesis report

The Social Protection Pathways to Nutrition study is a partnership between the Institute of Development Studies (IDS), International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and the World Food Programme (WFP). The overarching goal of the Social Protection Pathways to Nutrition study is to review the evidence and propose an analytical and operational framework that links social protection to better nutrition outcomes. The study seeks to strengthen the positive impacts of social protection interventions in Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) on diet and nutritional status outcomes, by building a robust evidence-base focused on ‘what works’, ‘how’ and ‘why’, in order to contribute to enhanced wellbeing in the region.
