​This is a 2012 update of a short report by DfID, first published in 2009, and draws on a more recent evidence base on maternal and child undernutrition. Tha authors provide a brief look at the scale and impact undernutrition (physiological, economic), as well as the benefits of scaling up interventions. It ends with a review of the (newer) evidence based on a literature review, including for nutrition-sensitive programs with a focus on agriculture and social protection.
