DFID-funded Framework for Scaling up Nutrition Programs


Project Description
Under a U.K. Department for International Development (DFID)-funded framework, Agribusiness Systems International (ASI), as a subrecipient to PATH, will assist with the urgent task of scaling up nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive programs. Working with a consortium of organizations, this project will provide technical expertise on program design and implementation. The aim is to harness the consortium’s specialized skills and capacity to maximize the quality and impact of the targeted DFID programs.


Project Approach
The project is implemented by a consortium of eight leading nongovernmental organizations in the field of nutrition including PATH, ASI, Aga Khan University, Health Partners International, ICF International, Institute of Development Studies, International Food Policy Research Institute and Save the Children. They bring a breadth and depth of internationally recognized expertise in nutrition, food security, social protection, agriculture, gender, governance and knowledge management.


The group will expand the evidence base on the causes of undernutrition; enhance skills and capacity to support scaling up of nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive programs; provide the best guidance available to support program design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation; and foster innovation in nutrition knowledge-sharing to ensure that lessons are learned within DFID and beyond.


Impact and Accomplishments
Another example of ASI’s work under this framework is in Ethiopia, where ASI provided DFID with technical inputs to develop a business case for a future nutrition program. ASI's local consultant provided guidance on the nutrition situation in Ethiopia, proposed interventions and developed an effective results approach.
