Including men in nutrition programming

In Senegal participants at an initial PAL for Gender Mainstreaming workshop realised that men were often not included in nutrition programming. Convinced of the importance of fathers’ involvement in their children’s nutrition, they wanted to understand how this could be rectified. 

The discussions also help identify good gender practices that could be documented to promote further learning. 

Sharing women farmers' involvement

Staff in the World Food Programme Kenya office had worked to promote women farmers' involvement in Purchase for Progress, a programme that supported local farmers to supply food for WFP initiatives. They decided to develop a dynamic visual presentation that could enable others to learn from their experience.
