Multisectoral approaches to improving nutrition : water, sanitation, and hygiene
This new report from the Water and Santiation Program, managed by the World Bank Group, reviews evidence linking WASH with nutrition, and explores how renewed interest in the WASH-nutrition nexus can be leveraged to improve programming. The report outlines the rationale for nutrition-sensitive WASH, summarizes the scientific evidence on the pathways through which WASH impacts nutrition outcomes, discusses the challenges and opportunities for nutrition-sensitive WASH, and proposes a set of practical strategies for enhancements to existing projects. They look in particular at how nutrition-specific and -sensitive programs can deliver services at scale and more cost-effectively, and also how WASH interventions can be adapted to include nutritional considerations.
