MANAGING INTERACTIONS BETWEEN HOUSEHOLD FOOD SECURITY AND PRESCHOOLER HEALTH AgEcon
Haddad, Lawrence James; Bhattarai, Saroj; Immink, Maarten; Kumar, Shubh K..
Data from Ethiopia, the Philippines, and Pakistan are used in this paper to examine the complex interaction of illness and lack of food on malnutrition rates among preschool children. The paper finds that when diarrhea is prevalent, the effects of food shortages on malnutrition are worse, and when food is scarce, the effects of diarrhea on malnutrition are worse. Policymakers not only must aim to increase incomes and food consumption, but also to assure access to health care, clean water, and sanitation.

Adoption of Hybrid maize in Zambia: effects on gender roles, food consumption, and nutrition AgEcon
Kumar, Shubh K..
Enhanced agriculture productivity in sub-Saharan Africa is critical to promote economic growth and poverty alleviation and to avoid increasing food scarcities in the region. The impact of commercialization and intensification of agriculture on the well- being of the rural poor depends on how they are carried out. Past research by IFPRI and collaborating institutions on commercialization of small- scale farming in about a dozen countries provided new knowledge about the relationships between commercialization and rural well- being as measured by incomes, consumption, and nutrition. These links were shown to depend greatly on household behavior, which in turn is influenced by intrahousehold processes. A better understanding of these processes is likely to...

Consequences of Deforestation for Women’s Time Allocation, Agricultural Production, and Nutrition in Hill Areas of Nepal AgEcon
Kumar, Shubh K.; Hotchkiss, David.
In the face of growing concerns about the environment, policy makers in developing countries find themselves increasingly pressured to choose between environmental deterioration in the long run and the growing demands of poor populations in the short run. Some environmentalists point to new technology –irrigation, fertilizer, and pesticides- as the basis of ecological decay in rural areas. A number of studies have shown, instead, that expanding farm yields in less fragile area through modern technology offers a viable alternative to stripping the land to expand crop area in marginal soils. In the hill areas of Nepal, as many developing countries, women’s work is the key not only to the functioning of the household but also a necessary supply of field...
