In the global nutrition sector, the focus on interconnectedness is omnipresent — but has this approach really worked in practice, at scale?

As part of the Scaling Nutrition content series, Devex and The Eleanor Crook Foundation hosted a digital event designed to spark a productive debate on scalable solutions to end global malnutrition by 2030. Devex Editorial Director Richard Jones led a nuanced conversation, highlighting the tension between a push for more multisectoral approaches on one hand and the need for simplicity when designing for scale on the other.

Highlights from this webinar include:
• What to consider at the beginning of a project when hoping to achieve scale.
• Vertical and horizontal frameworks for scale.
• Circumstances that can enable scale and challenges to achieving scale.
• The unique challenges of the nutrition space when it comes to scaling interventions.
• Moving beyond “nutrition-specific” and “nutrition-sensitive” interventions to a new stakeholder framework.

• Debora Niyeha, nutrition lead and project manager, RISE RCT, Helen Keller International
• Habtamu Fekadu, nutrition director, Save the Children
• Ellen Piwoz, initiative lead, Nutrition Strategy Evidence to Action, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
