While there are many opportunities to make agriculture more nutrition-sensitive, understanding how to influence behavior to address the indirect causes of malnutrition can be a challenge. USAID’s multi-sectoral nutrition project, SPRING, has developed an online training course for professionals who design and implement agriculture projects. The course builds knowledge and skills so participants can make agriculture projects more nutrition-sensitive by more effectively leveraging agriculture’s potential to contribute to specified nutrition outcomes. Training participants will practice applying evidence-based approaches from behavioral science to first identify context-appropriate nutrition-sensitive agricultural practices and then learn how to facilitate increased use of those practices.
Sally Abbott, Senior Nutrition Advisor at USAID's Bureau for Food Security and Ashley Aakesson, Social and Behavior Change (SBC) Technical Advisor at SPRING introduce this exciting new course. During this webinar, the authors will walk through the five steps in the training, providing short demonstrations throughout.
