c) Identify and implement evaluation of social protection and direct nutrition interventions in Bangladesh
With the aim of drawing lessons on how to maximize the nutrition-sensitivity of social protection interventions, this study will extend ongoing evaluations of social protection interventions to more fully encompass nutrition in Bangladesh. The study will specifically look at transfer modalities, such as food, cash, and vouchers, as well as behaviour change communication interventions that aim to improve nutrition. The study will also look at interventions in localities with fragile agro-ecological conditions, in order to draw lessons on nutrition and fragility. This study, due to be completed in 2014 with a final workshop in Dhaka, is being led by John Hoddinott of IFPRI.
