Wasting and Stunting: Programme and Policy Implications

Given the evidence generated by the WaSt TIG and others, it is important to continue to concentrate on maximising the impact of our work by ensuring it is accessible to key actors within and outside the nutrition community spanning the worlds of wasting and stunting and humanitarian and development contexts. Our work in this regard focusses on engaging stakeholders to further elaborate on the policy and programmatic implications and from there, identifying key opportunities for influencing. Some of our work to date includes:

 

Technical Briefing Paper from the Wasting and Stunting Technical Interest Group: Updating evidence on the relationship between wasting and stunting (2022)

Best Practice in Preventing Child Wasting within the Wider Context of Undernutrition (2021)

The Wasting & Stunting Technical Interest Group: Generating Evidence to Challenge the Divide in Nutrition (2021)

Child wasting and stunting: Time to overcome the separation (2018)

Wasting and stunting—similarities and differences: Policy and programmatic implications (2015)
