Nutrition and Agriculture Linkages

In what ways do investments in agriculture achieve significant measurable impacts in nutrition? As a corollary, can pathways to impact be empirically demonstrated?

Recognition that “merely producing more food does not ensure food security or improved nutrition” (Herforth et al. 2012) begs questions about when, where and why does it, or does it not ensure food security or improved nutrition? These questions lie at the core of a better understanding of the reality of agriculture-to-nutrition linkages.
