Pakistan: Country Sythesis Brief
MetadataShow full item record
Government policies for agriculture have traditionally focused on increasing crop yields, maintaining food price stability and improving the distribution network of food crops in Pakistan. However, strong, recent interest in nutrition has brought opportunities to engage with these policies based on evidence on ways to enhance them. The Leveraging Agriculture for Nutrition in South Asia (LANSA) research programme consortium aims to enhance the impact of agriculture on maternal and child nutrition in Pakistan. LANSA activities in the country have included: mapping of stakeholder perceptions of sectoral policies and programmes, primary research, secondary data analysis, policy dialogue, capacity strengthening, research uptake and dissemination. The Collective for Social Science Research (CSSR) is the lead institution for LANSA research in Pakistan, working with the partners, The Leverhulme Centre for Integrated Agricultural Research (LCIRAH), International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and Institute of Development Studies (IDS). In addition, there were research collaborations with Action Against Hunger (ACF) Pakistan.
