The scope of this review focused on traditional markets, which provide millions of people with nutrient-rich commodities like animal-source foods and fresh produce. However, these same foods are the leading cause of foodborne disease globally. The research, based on insights from 11 literature reviews, revealed that there is a strong connection between food safety, nutrition, and health. To address these issues, a food systems approach is required.
GAIN undertook an assessment of existing workforce nutrition-related policies to identify opportunities for improvement and generate insights into how policymakers and other policy stakeholders can contribute to healthier work environments. This briefing paper summarises the findings of a cross-cutting policy assessment for 12 countries across Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
But how do we assess current levels of integration and opportunities to strengthen it? That is where this baseline report comes in. It assesses integration and identifies opportunities to act jointly. The bad news in its results is that in general, climate and nutrition are not well connected.
The GAIN Business Model Research (BMR) Project, funded by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, aims to identify promising business models that can do just this.
Nigeria’s plan for the transformation of its food systems, presented after the landmark 2021 United Nations Food Systems Summit, is proof of its strong political dedication to implementing impactful changes in the country’s food systems.
Le Code de conduite est un engagement solennel et de bonne foi que chacun de nous prend en faveur de ces valeurs au sein de la GAIN, à tout moment, quelle que soit la relation, que nos actions soient visibles ou non par les autres.
The Code of Conduct is a solemn and good faith commitment each of us makes to uphold these values at GAIN, at all times, no matter the relationship, and whether or not our actions are visible to others.
GAIN’s Environment Screening Tool represents a key step towards systematically incorporating environmental considerations into GAIN’s programmes. It is designed to enable a rapid self-assessment, which identifies environment-related risk factors, prompts mitigation actions, and encourages teams to explore opportunities for environment-nutrition win-wins.
In this paper, EatSafe examines the process of “making a market” through a case study of vendors and consumers, using in-depth interviews, in Birnin Kebbi, Nigeria. Results demonstrate that market transactions are influenced by a complex interaction of vendors’ norms on competition and collaboration, consumers’ needs for credit amid unpredictable prices and restrictive gender norms, and a “moral economy” that appears to guide market actors’ behavior.
The 2021 UN Food System Summit led to strategic pathways for food system transformation in countries, supported by an Ecosystem of Support (EoS).
This analysis evaluates transformation progress, suggests principles for effective EoS functioning, and emphasizes flexibility while respecting national leadership and promoting collaboration, inclusivity, and transparency and decision-making in advancing food system goals.
