In countries where the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) main offices are located, tomatoes vary in abundance - with the average supply from approximately one tenth of a medium-sized (60g) tomato per person per week in Ethiopia, to four medium-sized tomatoes per person per week in India, and up to 12 medium-sized tomatoes per person per week in the US.
Based on an external assessment, this working paper summarises PLAN’s work in Nigeria (N-PLAN) and Indonesia (I-PLAN), impacts to date, and key learnings. The assessment indicated that PLAN has helped create influential networks, allowing diverse stakeholders to work together to address common issues related to post-harvest loss.
EatSafe conducted a scoping review to assess consumer-facing food safety interventions carried out globally over the past 20 years, and categorised and analysed them by type of theory, intervention strategy, evaluation design, and outcomes to understand which perception and practice interventions might be effective in changing consumer behaviour, knowledge, attitudes, beliefs and perceptions on food safety.
This report presents stories from top practitioners in the field of Social and Behavior Change Communication (SBCC) media worldwide in order to uncover the nuances of program development that can guide more effective EatSafe SBCC media productions and help implement more sustainable programmes.
This review covers indicators for public health (the burden of foodborne disease); the demand side (consumer and vendor knowledge, attitudes, practice indicators; civil society organizations); the supply side (food hazard standards and indicators; food industry performance indicators); and the enabling environment (core competencies of national food safety systems and indicators for performance; broader natural and societal contexts).
To understand how both food vendors and consumers conceptualize food safety, their attitudes and beliefs about the risk of foodborne illness and how to prevent it, and how this knowledge and these beliefs are reflected in their practices and interactions with one another, EatSafe conducted two scoping reviews, both presented in this report: one on consumer perceptions of food safety (Part 1) and one on vendor perceptions of food safety (Part 2).
This report provides an overview of cross-pathways linking food safety/foodborne illness and nutrition and their shared impacts on health while highlighting research gaps and opportunities for intervention. This body of evidence is meant to support the development of a framework linking food safety and nutrition, as part of Feed the Future and EatSafe programming.
To learn from past endeavors in Nigeria, a desk review of previous investments in food safety in Nigeria was undertaken using the available database of the Global Food Safety Partnership, a public private initiative hosted by the World Bank. This effort is aimed at gauging the level of funding directed at food safety compared to other components of projects funded.
One in three people globally suffers from at least one type of malnutrition. Malnutrition brings significant losses in productivity and potential, and poses challenges to employers in all settings. 58% of the world’s population will spend one third of their time at work during their adult life, so employers have an opportunity to help tackle malnutrition.
In 2021, two major Summits will take place to fight malnutrition: the Nutrition for Growth Summit and the United Nations Food System Summit. These Summits are an opportunity to set ambitious targets regarding the private sector contribution to a better access to safe nutritious food. Ahead of these key events, the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN)/SUN Business Network (SBN) are working on understanding and strengthening current business accountability in nutrition by supporting better alignment of the reporting landscape.
