Our work in food security and agriculture has focused on food consumption behaviours, nutritional indicators, and assessments of projects which work on food security. We have performed a detailed assessment on agriculture seasonality affecting the nutritional security of pregnant and lactating women.
We are working on designing models that provide nutritious food to rural women and children. We have also supported corporates like UNILEVER develop and scale their projects on improving nutrition of the farmers from whom they source their agriculture products.
CMS in partnership with the World Bank evaluated the National Rural Livelihood Mission (NRLM), an initiative to create, test and pilot models that can improve the food security and nutritional outcomes for tribal communities in the Indian states of Jharkhand and Odisha. We lead and conducted multiple empirical studies with extremely marginalized tea workers for Global Alliance for Improved Nutriton’s (GAIN) Seeds of Prosperity programme in multiple states in India.
