Can I first ask for you to give a little more context to the question? Why do you want to know?

A quick look through the internet will tell you that the basic premise of a nutrition sensitive program is that it 'doesn't negatively effect the nutritional balance of the people you are trying to help'. In the context of agriculture, some would argue that this is merely a new term, and has no real connection with any new approach to agricultural development.

In many ways the term is a misnomer - agricultural intervention aimed at improving intervention, that is just agriculture.
