This IDS brief recommends policy advocates to expand their focus beyond agenda-setting and to be actively involved in the subsequent processes that contest, (re)formulate, translate, and ultimately implement nutrition policy. The authors stress that donors interested in supporting what they call ‘multi-level advocacy’ (MLA) for nutrition must recognize long-term funding needs to shift policy, even while efforts are often executed under short project cycles. The brief explores how MLA for nutrition fits in to decentralized governance, advocacy and accountability groups, and use of local data.
