Technical Report

Nutrition and livelihood initiatives with a focus on nutrition have been going on in various states in India for decades. However, the focus on agriculture for nutrition outcomes––better known as nutrition-sensitive agriculture––is a very recent priority in the country, and that to negligible investment in the state of Assam. This is one of the reasons USAID Advancing Nutrition prioritized this concept for intervention and specifically decided to collaborate with the government of Assam so it can be efficiently integrated with various other flagship programs on agriculture and nutrition that are being implemented through various departments.
