This article, published in the journal Food Control, reviewed 87 relevant studies on the food safety perspectives and practices of consumers and vendors in Nigeria, Africa's most populous country.
This article, published in in the journal Global Food Security, highlights a set of specific causal pathways through which food safety and nutrition are interlinked (across health and physiology, consumer behavior, supply chains and markets, and policy and regulation), and builds upon these underlying causal mechanisms to discuss areas for action on food safety and nutrition within the food system.
In October 2020, GAIN began conducting bi-weekly consumer and vendor surveys in two traditional markets in each country to assess the functioning of markets and market actors under COVID-19. The resulting Bulletins and Traditional Market Reports (TMRs) are shared here to present snapshots in time as the pandemic continues to evolve.
To examine perceptions, knowledge, and experience related to food safety among both consumers and traditional market vendors, EatSafe conducted a focused ethnographic study (FES) using a modular approach of qualitative methods.
GAIN organized two stakeholder workshops in Abuja and Birnin Kebbi, Nigeria in April and May 2021 to evaluate potential Custom Indicators for Phase II of the EatSafe program in Nigeria.
This report summarizes the launch of the EatSafe program in Nigeria, held in Abuja on December 3, 2020.
Designed to inspire EatSafe team members’ creativity and imagination prior to and during the EatSafe Intervention Sprint, this tool described the features, benefits, and enabling infrastructure of over 100 consumer-first food system innovations using Human Centered Design.
The Municipal Roundtable Discussion on design of safe markets for nutritious food was held as a town hall-style meeting on the 18 and 19 May 2021 in Birnin Kebbi.
The citizen engagement focused on relevant food safety stakeholders identified during the EatSafe Nigeria team’s preliminary advocacy visit to Kebbi State in February 2021. In addition to those food safety stakeholders who answered a questionnaire, the stakeholder mapping activities identified other stakeholders in the state who may be able to offer additional information.
To determine what standards EatSafe should apply when reviewing traditional markets, EatSafe reviewed existing normative guidelines that could be used by governments and other enabling organizations to promote safer food in traditional markets.
