Linking Agriculture and Nutrition

SPRING Participates in SUN Uganda Launch

Agriculture is fundamental to nutrition as it supplies food for all human beings. It is also a primary way people make a living in most developing countries. In collaboration with USAID and other global development partners, SPRING is building the evidence base around how nutritional outcomes may be strengthened through agricultural programming. Drawing on its team of agriculture, behavior change, and nutrition experts and the diverse programmatic and research experience of its partners, SPRING is working with USAID Missions to refine and apply a common framework for improving nutritional outcomes through agriculture. The SPRING team is documenting innovations and results, delivering technical assistance, and mobilizing stakeholders to improve the design, implementation and monitoring of Feed the Future activities. SPRING is also working directly with market-led value chain activities to translate planned improvements in food systems to support improved nutritional outcomes among Feed the Future target groups.
