Two Dimensions of Growth: Biology and Economics

"The potential of integrating nutrition and early childhood interventions into a life-cycle approach to personal and economic development"

There is extensive evidence that reducing undernutrition brings considerable economic benefits, often far greater than the costs of investing in nutrition programs.  But the evidence on a global scale offers only a first step toward guidance on priorities for investing in young children’s nutrition. 

This talk lecture explores the pathways from improved nutrition to economic growth, looking at the broad goals of investing in nutrition that go far beyond reducing stunting. In particular the lecture addressed the potential of integrating nutrition and early childhood interventions into a life-cycle approach to personal and economic development.
