This report attempts to fill some of the gaps in our understanding of effective nutrition-sensitive agriculture policies, commitments, and food-based solutions that help inform countries in their efforts to scale up nutrition. It presents a series of case studies commissioned by the UNSCN, which examine the "nutrition sensitivity" of agriculture and food policies as well as how the policies influence dietary, nutritional and health outcomes. The countries include: Brazil, Malawi, Mozambique, Nepal, Senegal, Sierra Leone, South Africa, and Thailand.
