BREAKOUT SESSION 7: FACILITATING RESEARCH UPTAKE - Speaker: Jennifer Nielsen

Jennifer Nielsen, Helen Keller International (HKI)

Enhanced Homestead Food Production and Women’s Empowerment

HKI’s nutrition-sensitive food production model targets the training, technical support and inputs for Homestead Food Production (HFP) to women in recognition of their important role as a gatekeeper for household nutrition and their limited access to assets for agricultural enterprises. This presentation will share outcomes from research conducted in partnership with IFPRI on the impact of the strategy on the distribution of agricultural assets and on social norms regarding women’s role in agriculture in Eastern Burkina Faso.
