The prevention of wasting with interventions that address food and feeding-related needs

Author: Kate Sadler, Bridget Fenn
Year: 2024
Resource type: Report

This rapid review summarises the evidence base for interventions to prevent wasting that address food and feeding-related needs. It was conducted as a collaboration between ENN and WFP (as part of their work on an investment case for evidence-based prevention of wasting packages). It also forms part of ENN’s work exploring the relationship between wasting and stunting and implications (WaSt project) specifically for ongoing work to map the broader costs of not preventing wasting.
