Supported initially by the Dutch Government and the Rockefeller Foundation and launched in the journal Nature Food in June 2020, GAIN, along with Johns Hopkins University, FAO, CIAT, the University of Michigan and Ag2Nut decided to create a platform that pulled together all the high-quality data available, organise it by food system component and make it easy to analyse, compare and visualise.
GAIN, together with implementing partners along with responsible Brands and Buyers worked collectively with the Government of Bangladesh (GOB)1 to incorporate workforce nutrition programs as a priority.
GAIN and partners, together with the Kaduna State Government in Nigeria, developed and implemented the 'Eggs Make Kids' campaign, launched on World Egg Day in October 2019.
In 2018 GAIN began work in collaboration with the District Fisheries Offices of Indonesia’s Ministry of Maritime Affairs (MMAF) to develop the Indonesia Postharvest Loss Alliance for Nutrition (I-PLAN). I-PLAN aimed to improve the domestic supply of fish by reducing post-harvest losses.

In anticipation of the 2022 AGRF, the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) and the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) have leveraged their existing partnership to produce this report to provide African leaders with cutting-edge data tools that can be employed to describe their nation’s food systems, diagnose the most urgent areas for action, and decide which evidence-based solutions best suit their needs.
The EatSafe Innovation Challenge launched in April 2022 to encourage students, researchers, entrepreneurs, and innovators to share their ideas on how food system innovations can be adapted and applied in traditional food markets and along value chains to solve food safety issues in Nigeria and Ethiopia. The top 10 finalists, five from each country, are highlighted in this report.
This paper, published in the journal Appetite, presents an evidence synthesis of ethnographic studies, with an emphasis on food safety beliefs, values, and related socio-cultural information, and a focus on consumers’ purchasing behaviors. Vendor perspectives are also briefly considered.
In a study published in the Journal of Food Protection, EatSafe conducted a rigorous scoping review to assess vendor-facing food safety interventions carried out globally over the past 20 years, and categorized and analyzed them by type of intervention, methods, and outcomes to understand which interventions might be effective in changing vendor's knowledge, attitudes, and practices (KAP) towards food safety.
