DFAT Guidance Note: Social Protection and Nutrition

This Guidance Note aims to equip aid administrators and practitioners working on social protection programs and familiar with the policy context to understand the challenges and potential of social protection to improve nutrition. It presents the theoretical case for using social protection in the fight against malnutrition and sets out a series of questions that should be considered, at each stage of the program cycle, to help to maximise the nutritional impact of social protection interventions.
