Nutrition and Resilience: A Scoping Study

Author: Lola Gostelow, Gwenola Desplats, Jeremy Shoham, Carmel Dolan, Peter Hailey
Year: 2016
Resource type: Report

This short, desk-based study provides a first exploration of the interconnections between resilience and nutrition, as evidenced in the guidance of six international donors (Canada, the EU, Germany, Ireland, the UK, and the USA) and the OECD (Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development1 ). It examines whether donors’ thinking and approaches on resilience have impacted on their thinking and approaches on nutrition (or could do so in future) and how hard-won lessons from the nutrition sector can be of value to those working for increased resilience. It concludes by setting out potential next steps.
