This document is the product of the joint efforts of the MDG-F and UNICEF to generate knowledge and provide evidence-based solutions for how to take a comprehensive look at the problem of malnutrition and food insecurity.The findings from the case studies and a historical review of working multisectorally in nutrition in varied country contexts can be used to inform this new era of multisectoral nutrition programming. The lessons learned relate to the institutions and politics of working multisectorally; systems to promote vertical and horizontal coordination; and multisectoral programme design and monitoring and evaluation. This study confirms the principle of “Plan multisectorally, implement sectorally, review multisectorially”. The three cases presented –Peru, Brazil and Bangladesh–, while contrasting in many ways, offer lessons that, in the end, are not dissimilar.
