Food security and nutrition are an important part of the rural development agenda in developing countries. Addressing this issue adequately requires an intersectoral approach from agriculture, health, and education, with coherent policies at the national level and with territorial relevance. In this context, extension services can play a critical role in promoting nutrition-sensitive agriculture and interacting with health and education services.
