    Climate change and agricultural policy options: A global-to-local approach cover image
    Policy Papers & Briefs
    November, 2016
    Global

    Climate change is a significant and growing threat to food security—already affecting vulnerable populations in many developing countries, and expected to affect ever more people in more places, unless action is taken beginning today. Current scenarios for business-as-usual farming under climate change project growing food security challenges by 2050. Worst hit will be underdeveloped regions of the world where food insecurity is already a problem and populations are vulnerable to shocks (Rosegrant et al. 2014).

    Empowering women to achieve food security cover image
    Policy Papers & Briefs
    August, 2001
    Global

    Women play important roles as producers of food, managers of natural resources, income earners, and caretakers of household food and nutrition security. Giving women the same access to physical and human resources as men could increase agricultural productivity, just as increases in women’s education and improvements in women’s status over the past quarter century have contributed to more than half of the reduction in the rate of child malnutrition.

    What Dimensions of Women’s Empowerment Matter Most for Child Nutrition? cover image

    Evidence Using Nationally Representative Data from Bangladesh

    Reports & Research
    June, 2012
    Bangladesh

    We use data from the 2007 Bangladesh Demographic and Health Survey to examine the relationship between women’s status and nutrition in Bangladesh using indicators of empowerment such as mobility, decisionmaking power, and attitudes toward verbal and physical abuse. We also examine the role of variables reflecting maternal education and height, in relation to child nutrition. All models control for age and sex of the child, household wealth, and region.

    Women’s empowerment and nutrition: An evidence review cover image
    Reports & Research
    October, 2013
    Global

    This paper starts by reflecting on the concept and measurement of women’s empowerment and then reviews some of the structural interventions that aim to influence underlying gender norms in society and eradicate gender discrimination. It then proceeds to review the evidence of the impact of three types of interventions—cash transfer programs, agricultural interventions, and microfinance programs—on women’s empowerment, nutrition, or both.

    Links between tenure security and food security: Evidence from Ethiopia cover image
    Reports & Research
    October, 2013
    Ethiopia

    This study uses five rounds of household panel data from Tigray, Ethiopia, collected in the period 1998–2010 to assess the impacts of a land registration and certification program that aimed to strengthen tenure security and how it has contributed to increased food availability and, thus, food security in this food-deficit region.

    Climate change and agriculture: Strengthening the role of smallholders cover image
    Peer-reviewed publication
    March, 2016
    Global

    Smallholder farmers have a vital role to play in global food security and nutrition, and in supporting a range of development and climate change goals. Strengthening the resilience and commercial viability of these farmers, particularly women and youth, can increase their capacity to contribute to these global goals.

    Nourishing millions: Stories of change in nutrition cover image
    Peer-reviewed publication
    Reports & Research

    Global, Ethiopia, Brazil, Peru, Thailand, Vietnam, Bangladesh, India, Nepal

    Malnutrition costs the world trillions of dollars, but global commitment to improving people’s nutrition is on the rise, and so is our knowledge of how to do so. Over the past 50 years, understanding of nutrition has evolved beyond a narrow focus on hunger and famine. We now know that good nutrition depends not only on people’s access to a wide variety of foods, but also on the care they receive and the environment they live in. A number of countries and programs have exploited this new understanding to make enormous strides in nutrition.

    September, 2016
    Global

    This paper reviews the literature to identify the relationship between tenure security and food security. The literatures on tenure issues and food security issues are not well connected and the scientific evidence on the causal links between tenure security and food security is very limited. The paper explores the conceptual linkages between land tenure reforms, tenure security and food security and illustrates how these vary across diverse contexts.

    Sustainable agricultural intensification: The promise of innovative farming practices cover image
    Journal Articles & Books
    January, 2014
    Global

    Sustainable agricultural intensification holds promise to play a
    role in the broader effort to ensure food security while protecting our natural
    resource base. But what would such a sustainable intensification look like in
    practice? This chapter presents the results of an ex ante assessment of the yield
    and food security potential of 11 technologies for the sustainable intensification
    of the key staple crops of maize, rice, and wheat.
