This guidance brief is a summary version of Module C of Improving Nutrition through Multisectoral Approaches and focuses on the integration of nutrition into agriculture and rural development policies and programs. This brief aims to provide practical guidance for maximizing the nutrition impacts of agriculture investments by action on the following fronts: (i) incorporate nutrition-sensitive analysis and activities into Agriculture and Economic Services (AES) project design and food security policy dialogue; (ii) measure the progress of activities affecting nutrition periodically through relevant output indicators, and through outcome indicators such as food consumption indicators at least at baseline/mid-term/project completion; (iii) ensure that agriculture projects and policies do not cause unintended harm to nutrition
