The objectives of the investigation were: (a) to assess the nature and the magnitude of the relationship between indicators of income and inequality and the prevalence of undernutrition in children less than 5 years of age in the world, using countries as units of analysis; (b) to discuss the relationship between poverty and undernutrition within a mid-income country with high levels of inequality; and (c) to document inequity in the distribution of food and nutrition programmes and to discuss the importance of adequate targeting and the potential role of income transfer programmes in preventing undernutrition, using data from Mexico.

As one of Clive's scouts I present a personal view of the inspiring lessons learned from him.
