Well-nourished people are better able to endure temporary reductions in food security and households with well-nourished people are better able to withstand shocks and stresses.
Nutrition is both a well-being outcome that resilience building contributes to and it is a resilience capacity. Well-nourished people are healthier and better able to work and endure temporary reductions in food security; in turn, households with well-nourished people are better able to withstand shocks and stresses when they occur.
Households with low levels of resilience often face malnutrition resulting from lack of access to nutritious food and restricting food intake when a shock occurs; thus, strengthening resilience is key to improving nutrition. Effective nutrition and resilience activities require a multisectoral approach that pairs humanitarian assistance with longer-term development and engages local stakeholders. Nutrition activities should also be context-specific, depending on existing coping mechanisms, opportunities, and nutritional needs.
