Social Protection Pathways to Nutrition: Rapid evidence review

The Social Protection Pathways to Nutrition Study is a partnership between the Institute of Development Studies (IDS), International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and World Food Programme (WFP), funded by WFP. The overarching goal of the Social Protection Pathways to Nutrition study is to review the evidence and propose an analytical and operational framework with the different pathways to nutrition identified, with a focus on multiple indicators of malnutrition, linking social protection with health and food systems. It seeks to strengthen the positive impacts of social protection interventions in the Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) region on diet and nutritional status outcomes, by building a robust evidence-base focused on ‘what works’, ‘how’ and ‘why’, to contribute to enhanced wellbeing in the region.
