Fill the Nutrient Gap Lao PDR-September 2017

The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), with technical input from key research institutes (University of California Davis, the International Food Policy Research Institute [IFPRI], Epicentre, Harvard University and Mahidol University) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), developed a framework for strengthened nutrition situation analysis and decision-making, now called “Fill the Nutrient Gap” (FNG), which aims to support identification of strategies for improving nutrition with an emphasis on increasing access to nutrients, especially during the critical period of the first 1,000 days.
