Shifting the policy limelight towards women agricultural workers in Pakistan

The Women’s Work and Nutrition (WWN) survey conducted collaboratively by CSSR and LCIRAH aims to address evidence gaps by evaluating the impact of women’s work in agriculture on their own nutrition and that of their young children. It also seeks to find ways to reduce the negative impacts and enhance the positive ones. Given the emerging importance of the provincial level of government in agricultural as well as nutritional policy and programming, the main focus of the study and its research uptake is on the province of Sindh which has the highest rates of undernutrition in Pakistan alongside a thriving agricultural economy. In addition to our continuing contacts with stakeholders in government and donors, engagement with community-level stakeholders began towards the end of 2016 as one way of addressing fluctuating interest and commitment at the higher policy levels.
