Marketplace Resources

Resources and tools developed by the project from 2018-2023 and shared in the Marketplace exhibition space are available below.

Household actions alone are insufficient to sustainably reduce malnutrition. Well-considered interventions within the food system can enable household-level actions to improve diets and nutrition through women’s empowerment, agricultural production, and income generation. Explore the resources below to learn more about a food systems approach to improve nutrition, along with evidence and learning.

The first 1,000 days represent a unique opportunity to improve child nutrition and development outcomes but good nutrition is essential throughout the life cycle, including adolescence. High quality services that promote nutrition and nurturing care delivered by strong health systems are critical to ensure that children thrive. Explore the resources below for guidance and tools to improve nutrition and child development through quality nutrition services.

Addressing malnutrition in fragile contexts resulting from natural disasters, conflict, or protracted crises is a unique challenge. USAID Advancing Nutrition has provided technical assistance to help strengthen the quality of USAID-funded Resilience Food Security Activities that address the immediate, underlying, and root causes of malnutrition and food insecurity in non-emergency contexts and contributed to updated guidance for nutrition programming in emergency contexts. Explore the resources below to learn more about USAID Advancing Nutrition’s work in fragile contexts.

Improving the measurement of healthy diets, micronutrient status, and the burden of micronutrient deficiencies in global and local contexts is critical to ensuring evidence-informed approaches to advance nutrition. Through primary research and secondary analyses, USAID Advancing Nutrition has generated evidence about effective nutrition programs and factors that influence maternal, adolescent, and child nutrition; measurement of the quality and coverage of services; and, monitoring and evaluation practices for programs. Explore the resources below to learn more about USAID Advancing Nutrition’s measurement work.

Quality social and behavior change (SBC) is the thread that ties nutrition sectors and strategies together for improved nutrition. Whether an activity aims to improve the nutritional status of women and children, foster more resilient communities, or increase the availability of safe, affordable, and nutritious foods, people—and what people do—are at the heart of the solution. Explore the resources below to learn more about USAID Advancing Nutrition’s work to improve nutrition through social and behavior change.

Micronutrient deficiency, sometimes called  “hidden hunger,” refers to deficiencies in iron, zinc, vitamin A, vitamin B12, and folate, among others vitamins and minerals. These deficiencies can result in anemia, compromise immune systems, hinder child growth and development, and limit human capital. Accurate, consistent measurement of anemia and micronutrient deficiencies is critical to addressing and improving nutrition. Learn more about USAID Advancing Nutrition’s work to strengthen micronutrient measurement and programming to reduce anemia prevalence.
