In a new A4NH Gender-Nutrition Idea Exchange post, Elizabeth Bryan builds on the agriculture-nutrition framework to examine the gendered pathways through which small-scale irrigation can affect nutrition and health outcomes. Read the blogpost here.
Also, in case you missed it: In response to increasing interest in how health has bearings on the gender-agriculture-nutrition framework, A4NH organized a seminar on Agriculture, Gender, and Health: Tracing the Links on October 20, 2015. The seminar provided three case studies in how gender dynamics in rural livelihoods influence health, and in turn, nutrition. The presentations are available in the following links:
- Kelly Jones shared an overview of gender issues in health research and then presented on recent research that traces how livelihood shocks increase HIV transmission through transactional sex, especially for women.
- Delia Grace introduced a gender-sensitive participatory risk assessment framework for addressing food safety.
- Elizabeth Bryan shared research on the links between small-scale irrigation adoption, gender, and health and nutrition outcomes.
