Leveraging agricultural systems to improve nutrition security: investigation of 10 supply chains and entry points for nutrition

This report presents possible nutrition interventions in agricultural systems for 10 priority global commodity supply chains. In recent years, global attention has focused increasingly on sustainability programs and certification standards for cash and food crops. These structures usually address productivity, labour conditions, environmentally sustainable production methods and human rights with a view of contributing to economic development. The promotion of good agricultural practices is at the core of such programs, but nutrition is rarely addressed. 

GAIN’s nutrition secure supply chain program will integrate nutrition interventions into production systems without competing with the current crop production. The report contends that within these 10 prioritised supply chains, the nutrition-sensitive interventions could potentially reach over 400 million smallholder farmers.
