Abstract: Collaborative Research Support Programs (CRSPs) represent a long-standing form of US government funding for research that facilitates partnerships among US-based and developing country scholars on agriculture, food and nutrition issues of policy relevance globally. The CRSPs receive core funding from the Bureau for Food Security of USAID, as well as buy-ins from USAID Missions and other parts of the Agency. The Nutrition CRSP is the most recently-established of 10 existing CRSPs. As the first in a series of summaries of key issues, aimed at communicating progress on activities in Asia and Africa, this Research Brief provides information on Goals and planned activities of the Nutrition CRSP in Nepal.
