Report Launch: Herding Livestock Programs Toward Nutrition
How can livestock ownership and management improve children’s nutrition in low income countries? Can livestock interventions make a meaningful contribution to Feed the Future’s stunting reduction targets? How do they pair with and compare to more conventional nutrition approaches?
Join the CSIS Global Food Security Project for a report launch and panel discussion exploring the complex pathways from household livestock ownership to nutritional gains in early childhood. A detailed analysis of a Feed the Future dairy program in Rwanda provides a concrete example of the design, management, and measurement challenges of tying nutritional goals to livestock interventions. A new report, Herding Livestock Programs Toward Nutrition, offers recommendations to improve the nutrition focus and impact of livestock programs.
