Slide from November Ag2Nut call presentation

In the November 2016 Ag2Nut Call, Matthias Jäger, Markets and Value Chain Expert, International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) / CGIAR, presented findings from a pilot project in Kenya and Uganda, aimed at improving the diets of vulnerable rural and urban consumers through increased consumption of more affordable, diverse, safe, and nutrient-dense processed bean-based food products, sourced from local farmer organizations and delivered by small and medium enterprises (SMEs). This project uses a value chain for nutrition (VCN) approach, an innovative strategy that addresses nutrition problems by identifying opportunities where chain actors benefit from the marketing of agricultural products with higher nutritional value, focusing on those value chains that are most relevant to the poor, specifically women of reproductive age and children.
