Terms Of Reference for Consultant experienced in nutrition surveys (KAP) Salyan, Nepal

In Nepal, the nutritional status of mothers and children under five is extremely poor. For children, anthropometric deficits vary with ecological zone, in that stunting and underweight are more prevalent in the Mountains and Hills and wasting in the Terai. Over the last 20 years, no improvement has been observed in the nutritional status of children. At present, almost half the children are stunted and 11% are wasted.

Nepalese women are highly affected by malnutrition especially in non-mountainous regions. In Nepal, food shortages due to seasonality contribute to malnutrition. Through maternal anthropometric status, seasonality affects birth weight, and seasonality continues to affect growth throughout childhood.

The current project intends to improve substantially the food and nutrition security of very vulnerable smallholders and deprived groups of Salyan district. Overall objectives of the project: Food and nutrition security has been substantially improved through enhanced livelihoods.
