This brief was prepared after IFPRI's 2020 Conference on "Leveraging Agriculture for Improving Nutrition and Health", when it became clear that although many of the conference participants held extensive expertise in nutrition, agriculture, or health, few of them had expertise across all three sectors. This disconnect has been identified as a barrier to integration of the three sectors, so this brief aims to describe basic concepts and definitions, tools and indicators, and common interventions used by each sector. A deeper understanding of the basic issues will support better collaboration and dialogue between these three sectors.
