Applying nutrition-sensitive agriculture continues to challenge development practitioners all over the world. USAID Advancing Nutrition recently finalized the Nutrition-Sensitive Agriculture Design Guide—a facilitator’s guide with accompanying slides and handouts for a 3-day workshop for newly awarded USAID-funded agriculture projects.
In this webinar, the USAID Advancing Nutrition team was joined by the Feed the Future Rwanda Hinga Weze activity, and USAID Bureau of Food Security to talk about the Design Guide, its origin story, the Hinga Weze experience using it, and USAID’s vision for its use around the world.
You will hear more about the Guide, learn how to access it, and get answers to questions about how to use it. The Guide was developed with implementing partners in mind and we highly encourage the participation of field-based activity teams as well as their home office and USAID counterparts to consider using the Guide to inform upcoming design and/or work planning.
To foster learning and sharing of the Nutrition-Sensitive Agriculture Design Guide, USAID Advancing Nutrition launched a community of practice. The CoP aims to bring together activity teams who plan to facilitate the Designing Effective Nutrition-Sensitive Agriculture Activities Workshop. It provides members with tailored technical assistance to support facilitation of the Designing Effective Nutrition-Sensitive Agriculture Activities Workshop and application of those concepts to programming.
