Impact assessment of traditional vegetable production on livelihoods and nutritional outcomes in Tanzania

The presentation, based on field work, focuses on the dynamics of improving farm household income and the nutritional impacts of the production, marketing and consumption of traditional African vegetables. It investigates: (i) pathways for promoting nutritional awareness of farmers and adoption of selected traditional African vegetables; (ii) production constraints in their cultivation; and, (iii) how to improve smallholders’ market participation by linking nutritional awareness and production of African traditional vegetables.
