The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) has developed a successful program in several East African countries to address malnutrition through a market-based approach – the Marketplace for Nutritious Foods. This program is in place in Mozambique, Tanzania and Kenya, and is being expanded to Rwanda. GAIN engaged Elizabeth Rogers Consulting to carry out a landscape analysis to gather information on the current nutritional situation in the country.
The landscape exercise was carried out to broadly look at nutrition, food production, marketing and access in the country. In addition, the enabling environment for business and other programs taking place for nutrition were analysed. The analysis was carried out with extensive desk research and a visit to Rwanda in September 2015 to interview key stakeholders along various value chains. This report presents the key findings of the assessment.
