CALL FOR SUCCESS STORIES

Deadline February 15th, 2018

  1. What approaches are working well?
  2. What are the struggles & challenges in integrating gender & nutrition?

Cases can be about a big program intervention, or about a small practice that made an important difference to your work.

Examples of Themes & Actions:

  • Utilize gender analysis to inform service/program design and implementation
  • Diversify production to meet  nutritional needs
  • Provide market oriented advisory services
  • Encourage small scale production such as Homestead gardens
