LEVERAGING AGRICULTURE

Supported by Department of International Development (DFID), UK, the LANSA is a multi-institutional consortium of partners from South Asia, the UK and USA, led by the M.S. Swaminathan Research Foundation (MSSRF), India. The other partners are:

  • BRAC, Bangladesh

  • Institute of Development Studies (IDS), UK
  • International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), USA
  • Leverhulme Centre for Integrative Research on Agriculture and Health (LCIRAH), UK

LANSA focus on a better understanding of the nature of links between broad based agricultural productivity growth and nutritional outcomes particularly for women and children in poor rural households. It carries out high quality research to identify and bridge knowledge gaps: to understand the links between agriculture and nutrition; to identify effective strategies for making agriculture more pro-nutrition; and to better understand how policy and action can contribute to creating an enabling environment to accelerate undernutrition reduction.
