Please join us to discuss the linkages between agriculture and nutrition programming. The half-day event will feature a forum on the integration of nutritional concerns into agricultural programming, and a practicum on the assessment and improvement of agricultural project designs to maximize nutrition and food security outcomes.  The discussion forum will focus on a review of evidence on the nutrition and food security impacts of agriculture interventions, and best practices that emerged from the review. IYCN will introduce newly revised planning tools for promoting and protecting the nutritional concerns of mothers and children in agricultural development efforts.
