(February 2012 - )
LANSA is a research programme consortium (RPC) funded by the Department for International Development (DFID) UK. The consortium is based on the premise that nutritional trends have been stagnant over much of South Asia despite economic growth and improvements in agricultural productivity. LANSA aims to generate evidence on how agricultural growth in South Asia might become more pro-nutrition. The research programme of the consortium will identify policy actions which can lead to agriculture having a much larger impact on food security and under nutrition across the region. The Collective is the LANSA partner in Pakistan. The consortium is led by the M.S. Swaminathan Research Foundation (MSSRF) in India, and includes BRAC International in Bangladesh, Institute of Development Studies (IDS) UK, International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and Leverhulme Centre for Integrative Research on Agriculture and Health (LCIRAH) UK.
