This event was presented by the World Bank Group Agriculture Global Practice and co-hosted with the Health Global Practice and SecureNutrition.


On March 16, Domitille Kauffmann from FAO’s Nutrition and Food Systems Division delivered a training to strengthen capacities of development practitioners to integrate nutrition into their agriculture/livelihoods projects. She walked through fundamentals of nutrition, followed by conceptual linkages between agriculture and nutrition, and finally finished with a case study to adapt a fictional "Maize Intensification Programme" to be nutrition-sensitive. About 40 participants attended.
