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.
To increase consumer demand for improved food safety, EatSafe is testing four interventions that seek to change consumers and vendor behaviors in two traditional food markets in Northwestern Nigeria.
This report is an appraisal of a methodological approach conceptualized and commissioned by GAIN and designed by Euromonitor to assess the informal dairy market in Ethiopia using formal market approaches. This work was conducted in 2019 with support from Wageningen University under the Agriculture 4 Nutrition and Health Program.
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 2022 EatSafe Innovation Challenge received 700 applications from students, researchers, and entrepreneurs with ideas how to adapt food system innovations to traditional food markets contexts and along value chains to solve food safety issues in Nigeria and Ethiopia.
Using a theory of change or a programme impact pathway to guide design, monitoring, and evaluation efforts is increasingly being used across various nutrition interventions, yet there are few documented examples in biofortification programmes.
Biofortification (or nutrient enrichment) of staple crops has the potential to contribute to reducing micronutrient deficiencies by increasing micronutrient intakes. In 2019, GAIN and HarvestPlus entered a partnership to lead the Commercialisation of Biofortified Crops (CBC) Programme, which aims to catalyse commercial markets for biofortified crops in six countries across Africa and Asia.
To inform the development of effective commercialisation strategies, a systematic assessment of country- and crop-specific value chains is essential to identify success factors, barriers, and opportunities.
