Abstract

The Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) and the World Food Programme (WFP), both agencies of the United Nations System, have agreed to carry out a study to estimate the costs related to adopting more effective actions to fight stunting and micronutrient deficiencies in vulnerable populations. This document proposes a methodology for performing this analysis that can be replicated in various countries in the region.
