Throughout March we will have a series of blogs from our roving travel writer Caspar van Vark. Caspar will be visiting Kenya, Mozambique, Ethiopia and Nigeria. Caspar will be sharing his experiences with us, reporting back on how communities on the ground are tackling the complex challenge of malnutrition.
Caspar will be talking to local people, organisations and businesses about the innovative ways in which they are improving nutrition in their communities, investigating how GAIN and its partners are modifying the agriculture value chain to provide the most vulnerable people with nutritious foods, as well as analysing the successes and challenges of large scale food fortification.
