In recent years, high-level political commitment to address undernutrition has ramped up significantly. As practitioners, policymakers, and other decisionmakers grapple with implementing nutrition-relevant programs to accelerate and scale up impact on the ground, they are seeking guidance on how to improve nutrition in real world contexts. Well-documented stories of how to generate and scale up nutrition successes at the national, regional, and community levels, as well as how to develop leadership in nutrition, are urgently needed.
The International Food Policy Research Institute’s (IFPRI) Nourishing Millions: Stories of Change in Nutrition project brings together several narratives of change – of country-level progress, of successful programs and interventions, as well as stories of individual leaders and nutrition champions. The project will produce a book and a rich array of communication products and activities aimed at policymakers, development practitioners, donors, educators, students, and researchers. These are all scheduled for release in the summer of 2016.
