Under Nutrition and Public Policy in India

Under Nutrition and Public Policy in India

The overall objective of the project is to synthesize and, where needed, re-analyse existing research to inform and influence current debates on food and nutritional security in India. It will study existing research and commission new analysis to understand the issue of malnutrition and the barriers in the achievement of food and nutritional security in India. The project will also ensure that the findings of this research are responsive to policy discourse in India, particularly the ongoing debate on the National Food Security Act. It reinforces the existing capacity at the NCAER to analyse the links between nutrition and poverty and respond proactively to critical policy issues.
