The most intuitive linkage between agriculture and nutrition is food production – but the relationship goes far beyond. Agriculture not only supplies food but it is the basis of the livelihoods of millions of men and women around the world. In collaboration with USAID and other implementing partners, SPRING is increasing global understanding of how nutritional outcomes may be strengthened through agricultural programming. SPRING’s team of agriculture, behavior change, and nutrition experts is documenting innovations and results, delivering technical assistance, and mobilizing stakeholders to improve nutrition through agricultural interventions around the world.
On April 5-6, SPRING conducted a workshop with the Kyrgyz National Agrarian University on understanding the linkages between agriculture and nutrition in the Kyrgyz Republic.
