Join Clean, Fed & Nurtured on July 9 for a conversation with Dr. Marie T. Ruel, Director of the International Food Policy Research Institute’s (IFPRI) Poverty, Health and Nutrition Division, on the importance of cross-sectoral collaboration. Clean, Fed & Nurtured is a global community of practice that brings together the sectors of WASH, nutrition, and ECD to promote child growth and development.

Cross-sectoral collaboration has been highlighted in recent events such as the Nutrition for Growth summit and the Lancet Nutrition Series as a crucial factor to ensure optimal growth and development so children thrive. To continue the conversation on integrated interventions and programing, and to mobilize continued action, this webinar will provoke questions such as:

· In addition to WASH, nutrition and ECD, should other sectors should be considered?
· How can these integrated interventions best promote child growth and development?
· What additional evidence is currently available to support these integrations? What additional evidence is needed?
· Do any opportunities for cross-sectoral collaboration currently exist?

Dr. Ruel co-authored the 2013 Lancet Series paper: Nutrition-sensitive interventions and programmes: how can they help to accelerate progress in improving maternal and child nutrition? This paper describes the effects of nutrition-specific interventions in four sectors—agriculture, social safety nets, early childhood development, and schooling. We hope you will come ready to listen and participate.
