This working paper describes the process used by EatSafe in Nigeria to identify and design innovative interventions to do so.
In conjunction with EatSafe's other Phase I (Formative Research) activities, this quantitative formative assessment sought to understand consumers' and vendors' knowledge, attitudes, and practices (KAP) about food safety in one traditional food market in Hawassa, Ethiopia.
This working paper describes the application of the Behaviour Centred Design (BCD) framework to develop the 'Moments with Mothers' campaign, an intervention to improve IYCF practices supporting pregnant women, mothers, and other caregivers in Nacala Porto and Mossuril, Nampula province.
Climate change impacts and risks are becoming increasingly complex and more difficult to manage. Simultaneously, the world is facing the complex challenges of hunger and multiple forms of malnutrition.
The global food system is experiencing the worst crisis in history. Unlike the food price crisis of 2007-8, in 2022 there is a convergence of multiple crises. Hunger and malnutrition have soared in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19).
Malnutrition (hidden hunger) which means deficiencies of vitamins and minerals poses severe health and economic threat to Nigeria. It remains one of the leading causes of mortality among children under five and pregnant and nursing mothers in Nigeria.
As part of critical knowledge generation to inform policy development and stakeholder alignment on the prospects for rice fortification in Nigeria, a detailed landscape analysis of Nigeria's rice sector was undertaken along with a technical feasibility assessment of the opportunities and viability of rice fortification in Nigeria.
The PLAN Nigeria project focused on tomato value chains and employed two models in its theory of change i.e. improving coordination among value chain actors through an Alliance, and building capacity and encouraging SMEs to adopt improved practices and technologies through Business-to-Business (B2B) mentorship.
Food fortification is a safe and cost-effective strategy for improving diets and preventing or correcting micronutrient deficiencies. But industries delivering fortified foods are subjected to very high (around 60%) rates of import duties and taxes in Pakistan.
Nutrition for Growth (N4G) is a Summit held every four years alongside the Olympic Games to galvanise global actions to tackle malnutrition.
