Nutrition Metrics

17 million children suffer from severe acute malnutrition, the greatest single threat to the world’s public health. Village-level surveys that provide data and insights into anthropometric and dietary diversity indicators can play a vital role in improving the nutritional status of women and children.

Interventions 

Critical data is imperative for a better understanding of agriculture-nutrition linkages, and to analyze nutritional trends and how agriculture can play a vital role in improving the diet quality of women and children and in reducing micronutrient deficiencies like anemia. Our studies are filling this agriculture nutrition information gap through improved nutrition metrics and data.

Impacts

  • Three universities applying the robust methodologies and metrics for minimum nutrition data for agriculture developed, tested and validated for use in socio-economic surveys
  • Awareness creation on agriculture, nutrition, health and sanitation linkages – About 2068 individuals impacted in 8 villages of Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Maharashtra
  • 23 scholars and policymakers used data and metrics (2014-2015).
