In 2014, 171 million children under the age of five had stunted growth, meaning that they were excessively short for their age. Income poverty and inequalities in access to basic services, such as health, water, sanitation, and proper care and feeding practices in the initial stages of children's lives are associated with delayed growth and serious costs that are eventually borne by the rest of society.

In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the number of initiatives at the international as well as the country level that aim to scale up nutrition-sensitive interventions.

This book lays the groundwork for more effective multisectoral action on reducing stunting by analyzing and generating empirical evidence useful for informing the joint targeting and, if necessary, the sequencing of sector-specific interventions in countries in Sub-Sahara Africa. The book also provides a fresh perspective on the relationship between household wealth and income and child undernutrition.
