The objective of this paper is to identify if, why, and how value-chain concepts could and should be applied to enhance the ability of agriculture to leverage better nutrition. The paper is written from the perspective of nutrition, with the focus on increasing the supply and demand of foods that are rich in essential micronutrients such as fruit and vegetables, meat, fish and dairy products, and biofortified staple foods by the poor. This paper was commissioned for IFPRI's 2020 Conference on "Leveraging Agriculture for Nutrition and Health," focusing on what happens from production to consumption of foods, using the value chains approach.
