Adapting Agriculture Platforms for Nutrition: A Case Study of a Participatory, Video-Based Agricultural Extension Platform in India

This study examines the feasibility of delivering maternal, infant, and young child nutrition behavior change communication through an innovative agricultural extension program serving nutritionally vulnerable groups in rural India. The existing agriculture program involves participatory production of low-cost videos promoting best practices and broad dissemination through village-level women’s self-help groups. Compared to agricultural information, nutritional content required more time, creativity, and technical support to develop and deliver.
