Agriculture and nutrition in Pakistan: pathways and disconnects

This paper summarises existing evidence on nutrition and agriculture in Pakistan with the view of highlighting the main pathways and disconnects between agriculture growth and nutritional improvement. The first two sections (Sections 1 and 2) describe the nutrition and agriculture situations and trends respectively. Section 3 provides a summary of nutrition-related policies and programmes, and Section 4 does the same for agriculture-related policies and programmes. An analysis of the main pathways and disconnects between agricultural growth and nutritional improvement is presented in Sections 5 and 6 and Section 7 concludes the paper and identifies areas for future research.
