SecureNutrition developed this compendium of nutrition-sensitive social protection case studies with funding from the Russian Federation. The compendium is intended to augment the World Bank Group's guidance on improving nutrition through multisectoral approaches and inform ongoing and future efforts to improve nutrition outcomes through investments in the social protection sector.

This compendium contains 21 case studies from six international organizations. The studies document a range of nutrition-sensitive social protection programs being implemented in all regions of the world. They are not offered as "gold standards", but are representative examples of multisectoral work currently in use. The compendium was the basis for key sessions of the Global Forum on Nutrition-Sensitive Social Protection Programs in Moscow in September 2015, attended by approximately 150 participants from 20 countries.

The other Global Forum products are the Summary of Evidence and the Forum Report.
