Opening session & launch of the India Nutrition Implementation Research Gap Map

The major constraint in reducing malnutrition is not just in designing nutrition interventions but rather in ensuring their effective implementation. While the focus of policy makers and researchers has been on what works, there remains a gap in understanding what works in various contexts. To understand these gaps, 3ie and IFPRI collaborated in 2018 to create a gap map for implementation research on nutrition-specific intervention in India. This gap map consolidates evidence in This gap map can serve as an important tool for policymakers, practitioners, researchers and commissioners of research to set research priorities by pointing attention to areas where gaps exists in terms of little or no literature and more evidence is needed to inform policy and programming.
