Seeking ongoing nutrition-sensitive agriculture projects for a scoping review

Would you like to contribute to efforts to identify best practices and guidance for the design, implementation, and monitoring of diet-related social and behavior change in the context of nutrition-sensitive agriculture?

With funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, a team of researchers from Emory University is conducting a landscape analysis of social and behavior change efforts in the context of ongoing nutrition-sensitive agriculture projects in low- and middle-income countries. The team, led by Dr. Amy Webb Girard, is seeking 15-20 projects interested in participating in this work. Participation will include sharing project documents, taking part in remote interviews, and providing logistical support and permissions for field site visits. Site visits will serve to deepen the research team’s understanding of how projects design, implement and monitor diet-related social and behavior change. Upon completion of the site visit, the collaborating partner will receive, as desired, feedback on the research team’s findings via a debriefing session or a written report, akin to a process evaluation.

The team is specifically seeking projects that aim to improve diet quality and/or diversity of individuals and/or households. Projects from various settings, and operating through various agricultural sectors, and at various stages of implementation are eligible for consideration.
