Flagship 4 Note
This Flagship Program seeks to address major gaps which remain in our understanding of the agriculture-nutrition disconnect-- that is, the relatively small changes in nutrition in places (especially low- and middle-income countries) with high dependence on agriculture-based livelihoods and large changes in agricultural policy and practice. SPEAR builds on A4NH's resources, capacity, and experience with global and regional initiatives in Africa and South Asia to support countries in tackling these goals.
Flagship Leader Stuart Gillespie discusses A4NH work under SPEAR:

In 2017, KI3 researchers undertook a systematic mapping of organizations or initiatives that provide knowledge on how to optimally implement nutrition interventions. The systematic mapping was the first exercise of its kind. The research team screened hundreds of entities that work on nutrition and then collected extensive data on their characteristics, including their countries of operation, funding sources, nutrition aims, type of knowledge resources provided, phase of implementation their work contributes to, tools used to disseminate the work, and more. The attachment provided here is the resulting systematic map, and contains all of the data collected for analysis. If you would like more information on the map, please contact Roos Verstraeten.
