Herding Livestock Programs toward Nutrition
November 28, 2016
This report examines the role that livestock could have in achieving Feed the Future’s stunting goals. It examines the ways in which livestock and animal-sourced foods contribute to better nutrition. A case study of a Feed the Future dairy program in Rwanda is presented to understand how Feed the Future livestock programs can contribute to better outcomes for under nutrition. In addition, a synthesis of the constraints and opportunities to achieving nutrition goals through livestock are examined. Finally, recommendations are made on how Feed the Future programs that focus on livestock and animal-sourced foods can be oriented to reduce stunting.
