Abstract: Based on the belief that economic growth will contribute to improving food and nutrition security, governments are using public funds for private sector development. However, there is as yet little evidence that this contributes to greater food security at household level. Instead of assuming that private sector development will reduce malnutrition, public funders should require that impact pathways be part of any proposals requiring public funds, that interventions be systematically evaluated and that impact be measured at target group level. This policy brief looks at the rationale behind public investment in private sector development and provides a framework with pathways for measuring the impact of private sector interventions, and specifically for monitoring and evaluating these impacts.
