The causes of malnutrition in all its forms are complex and multifaceted. Efforts to advance multisectoral nutrition programming recognise that a commitment from multiple stakeholders beyond nutritionists, from a variety of disciplines, is required. A key strategy therefore, in seeking to address malnutrition, is to promote interdisciplinary and post-graduate education among future researchers, policy-makers and practitioners. 

The ANH Academy Technical Working Group on Curriculum Enrichment was established in 2020 to better understand the skills, materials and support needs of university educators who would like to teach and research multisectoral and interdisciplinary agriculture-food system linkages around the world.
