Leveraging Nutrition and Social Protection Programming

to address Malnutrition and Poverty, including in Fragile and Humanitarian Contexts

About

UNICEF’s Position Paper on Leveraging Nutrition and Social Protection Programming to address Malnutrition and Poverty, including in Fragile and Humanitarian Contexts describes the rationale for purposively integrating nutrition and social protection programmes. It explains why a collaborative response matters for children and women. The Position Paper lays out UNICEF’s commitment to five strategic priorities, which include: taking a multi-level approach to integrating nutrition and social protection, implementing fit-for-purpose programs, adapting and scaling up for urgent humanitarian needs, strengthening convergence and local capacities for enhancing implementation, and investing in gender-transformative programs.  UNICEF is well placed and committed to adopting this integrated, collaborative, and systemic approach that prioritizes preventive and sustainable actions across nutrition and social protection programmes including in fragile contexts and those affected by severe food and nutrition insecurity.
