Learn from SNV at the Micronutrient Forum’s 6th Global Conference

Our speakers will cover strategies and execution across various nutrition entry points using representative examples and detailing their outcomes, impacts achieved, and challenges encountered.

Integrated nutrition and agriculture programming

Koffi Landry Kouadio from Helen Keller International will navigate us through the pathways linking agricultural practices and nutritional outcomes. The CHANGE project in Cote d’Ivoire stands testament to the potency of Integrated Nutrition and Agriculture Programming (INAP), revealing a tangible impact—household food insecurity plummeted from 83.5% to 59.6% within three years, paired with a significant upswing in women’s dietary diversity.

Food environment and Social and Behavioural Change Communication (SBCC)

In a dive into the intricate realm of food environments and consumer behaviors, Joseph Bwire from SNV will share how SBCC molds consumer choices and propels them towards nutritious consumption practices. Take a glimpse into the success of Sustainable Nutrition for All (SN4A) project in Uganda and Zambia, where a multifaceted rise in farm diversity and dietary adequacy was recorded over four years.

Nutrition governance

Thirdly, Priyanka Basnet from SNV will illuminate pathways for elevating nutrition governance via strengthened multisectoral coordination. By offering a glimpse into the ENUFF project in Laos, she will illustrate how enhancing the number and diversity of crops grown can significantly uplift children’s dietary diversity, pointing towards the intersection of governance, community, and nutrition.

Robust dialogue: panel discussion insights

Our panel discussion, featuring voices from Sweet ‘n’ Dried, Bopinc, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, will probe into practical and policy perspectives across various sectors. Their dialogue will address critical aspects such as private sector contributions to nutritious food accessibility, empowering women in agribusiness, the role of SBCC interventions, and the complexities of meshing local development into national policies.
