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.
