A growing number of donor agencies and development organisations are integrating nutrition into their agricultural programs. Although the connection is well recognised, the exact pathways of which agriculture can influence nutrition-related outcomes are still unclear. This paper reviews recent evidence, including findings various evaluations of nutrition-sensitive agriculture programs, as well as other designs that link agriculture, women’s empowerment and nutrition. The discussion note summarises existing knowledge about impact, pathways, mechanisms and contextual factors that affect the way agricultural impacts nutrition. The paper concludes with reflections on implications for agricultural programs and policies.
