This is the key factor behind India's poor stunting growth (Financial Express)
- Impact Area
India’s Financial Express published an editorial piece on the drivers and determinants of childhood stunting. The article cited IFPRI research authored by Purnima Menon, Derek Headey, Rasmi Avula, and Phuong Nguyen that highlighted the two most influential factors of stunting, which are women’s Body Mass Index and their education attainment. The publication suggests eradication can be achieved if nutritional gaps for women are addressed.
