Nearly half of South Asian children are stunted. Agriculture is the main livelihood for nearly half the population in the region, yet its potential for reducing undernutrition has not been realised.

LANSA is a new international research partnership. We are finding out how agriculture and agri-food systems can be better designed to advance nutrition. We are focused on policies, interventions and strategies that can improve the nutritional status of children in South Asia.

What we do

Research to help us maximise agriculture for improved nutrition outcomes
Facilitating knowledge sharing and learning between partners and amongst stakeholders
Communicating research and engaging key stakeholders throughout the process
