In line with our Environment Strategy, we aim to do the following at COP27 - Highlight the need for coordinated and integrated action on climate and nutrition to prevent disastrous increases in food insecurity and malnutrition resulting from climate change
In 2018, GAIN expanded its Postharvest Loss Alliance for Nutrition (PLAN) program to Ethiopia with a focus on reducing loss of tomatoes. Working with local stakeholders, PLAN Ethiopia was designed with two key components.
To make sure Beira’s low-income population can continuously access affordable safe nutritious fresh foods and economic opportunities in traditional urban food markets, GAIN with funding from the government of the Netherlands supported the city of Beira by upgrading three fresh food markets.
Today, more than 125 countries have mandatory food fortification programmes. Food fortification requires a "premix" – a mixture of vitamins and minerals – that can then be added to various staple products.
To estimate consumer and vendors knowledge, attitude, and practices related to food safety, EatSafe in Ethiopia conducted in-depth interviews and direct observations among 100 respondents and a randomized experiment to identify whether improved hygiene leads to consumer behavior change.
Gallup, Harvard University, and the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition teamed up to overcome this challenge by initiating the Global Diet Quality Project. Through this project we have created a new approach that enables countries to track diet quality year to year, seasonally, or even more frequently.
The Global Diet Quality Project offers a new approach that enables countries to track diet quality. The project’s Diet Quality Questionnaire (DQQ) allows users to investigate both diet adequacy and diet components that protect against or increase risk of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs)
In this synthesis review, EatSafe evaluates the characteristics of successful food safety training interventions with the goal to inform EatSafe’s own interventions in Nigerian and Ethiopian traditional food markets.
EatSafe conducted a Story Sourcing activity to provide a nuanced view of the consumers and vendors that live in Hawassa and regularly visit the Aroge Gebeya traditional food market. The resulting 24 unique and compelling stories are presented in an interactive website.
The Lancet Global Health article is the first evidence-based global estimation of micronutrient (vitamin and minerals) deficiencies that systematically analyzed data on population-representative surveys from preschool-aged children and women of reproductive age.
