But that is only the beginning of understanding the connections between nutrition, health, and economic growth, according to IFPRI Senior Research Fellow Harold Alderman. Delivering the Martin J. Forman Memorial Lecture at IFPRI June 27, Alderman explored these pathways and ways to reform the targeting of nutrition investments, policies, and programs.
