The Integrating Gender and Nutrition within Agricultural Extension Services (INGENAES) is a USAID funded project that promotes dietary diversity through harmonising nutrition messages in agriculture. In this interview, Lillian Karanja, ENN’s East Africa’s Regional KM specialist speaks with Edye Kuyper who provides nutrition leadership within the INGENAES project, and Bertha Munthali, Nutrition Advisor for the Food, Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network.
Joyce Barakat and Linda Shaker-Berbari from the International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC) in Lebanon join us in a conversation about the community kitchens in Lebanon, featured in an article in NEX 8. The community kitchens were established in order to improve the nutrition status for the vulnerable Lebanese citizens and Syrian refugees living in the Bekka valley, north Lebanon.
Some of you will know that ENN has been coordinating a project with the expert steer of around 30 child growth and nutrition specialists from academia, donor and operational agencies. Collectively, we are known as the Wasting-Stunting Technical Interest Group (WAST-TIG) and we have been interacting across various work streams for a few years thanks to generous funding from Irish Aid and USAID OFDA.
