How Evidence Informs Decision-Making: The scale-up of nutrition actions through an early childhood development platform in Malawi

The case study created in partnership with IFPRI, U. Washington and Save the Children amongst others, and discusses the Nutrition Embedded Evaluation Impact Evaluation (NEEP-IE) which studied the impact of adding an integrated agriculture-nutrition behavior change communication component to an Early Childhood Development (ECD) package delivered through community-based childcare centers (CBCCs) in Malawi (Sponsorship). This study explores the enabling factors that informed and led to the government’s decision to scale-up nutrition sensitive actions through Malawi’s ECD program. Preliminary results were shared in an IFPRI policy seminar on the Malawi NEEP-IE project available here.

This case study was prepared as part of SEEMS-Nutrition (Strengthening Economic Evaluation for Multisectoral Strategies for Nutrition)
