The practical application of nutrition-sensitive agriculture continues to be a challenge for development practitioners all over the world. 

To gain a better understanding of how agriculture interventions can contribute to improved nutrition, USAID’s flagship multi-sectoral nutrition project, Strengthening Partnerships, Results, and Innovations in Nutrition Globally (SPRING), partnered with USAID and nongovernmental organizations operating in Zambia to learn from these three agriculture and food security activities implementing nutrition-sensitive interventions:

  • Mawa, led by Catholic Relief Services 
  • Realigning Agriculture to Improve Nutrition (RAIN/RAIN+) led by Concern Worldwide
  • Feed the Future Production, Finance, and Improved Technology Plus (PROFIT+), led by ACDI/VOCA 

This webinar discussed findings and recommendations and what they mean for future programming in Zambia and nutrition-sensitive programs worldwide.
