Linking agriculture and nutrition education for improved young child feeding

The final report of the Technical Meeting on Linking agriculture and nutrition education for improved young child feeding is now available. The meeting was jointly convened by FAO and the Justus Liebig University (JLU) Giessen, Germany and held at the FAO headquarters in Rome, Italy on 6–8 July 2015.

The report consists of two parts:  

- Part I: Technical Meeting Report (meeting proceedings)

- Part II: Programme Lessons (integrating nutrition education and agriculture for improved young child nutrition)

The Programme Lessons were developed to include the main lessons and good practices identified at the July meeting. FAO subsequently revised these through a consultative process with a smaller group of meeting participants to reflect the experiences of practitioners and researchers from a range of agriculture-nutrition education interventions in Africa and Asia.
