Gaps include analyses of interdependencies among food system activities, of narrative politics, and of the behaviour of food system components using dynamic methodologies.DocumentInstitute of Development Studies UK, 2019This article presents an example of a power analysis in the nutrition policy process in Zambia, using the ‘power cube’ framework.

These reports are heavily critical of the productionist approach, demonstrating its negative impacts on the environment and human wellbeing.
