The purpose of this webinar is to introduce Postdoctoral Fellowships on Innovative Methods and Metrics for Agriculture and Nutrition Actions (IMMANA Fellowships) to prospective applicants.
This is the third webinar in the series “Agriculture-Nutrition-Health linkages: Research in the African context”.
In this webinar awardees of Postdoctoral Fellowships on Innovative Methods and Metrics for Agriculture and Nutrition Actions (IMMANA Fellowships) presented findings from their research.
This is a second event in the new Webinar Series “Agriculture-Nutrition-Health linkages: Research in the African context”.
Trade, investment and nutrition: opportunities and challenges for policy coherence
Trade and investment liberalization has had far-reaching implications for food systems and nutrition. This seminar will examine the pathways through which trade impacts on nutrition, and explore opportunities to improve policy coherence in an era in which public health policy space is increasingly constrained by international trade and investment agreements.
In this IMMANA webinar, Aulo Gelli and Noora Aberman from IFPRI are talking about their funded project in value chains.
The presentation will share details of the ongoing FAARM trial and various add-on projects, including a LANSA project on urine-biochar fertilizer.

We show how integrating energy expenditure data from wearable accelerometry devices with data on activity and time-use can provide a window into agricultural and rural livelihoods in developing country contexts that has not been previously available for empirical research. We report on the protocols adopted and the preliminary findings from a pilot study in Northern Ghana involving 40 respondents wearing accelerometry devices for a week. The method adopted allows for a robust and precise delineation of gender-differentiated intra-household allocation of labour in rural households.
Mobile phone technologies (MP) have been widely adopted in developing countries. Previous research has shown MP use to enhance market access through information exchange and market price integration. However, the impact of MP use on several smallholder welfare aspects like gender and nutrition has barely been investigated. We use panel data collected from smallholder farm households in Uganda to examine the impact of MP use on gender roles, income earning activities and nutrition.
The Agriculture, Nutrition & Health (ANH) Academy invites the global community of ANH researchers and users of this research to the first ANH Academy Week to be held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on 20-24 June 2016
This webinar explored women's health and empowerment; critical factors that are frequently overlooked in agriculture and nutrition research. With the focus of interventions and studies so often centered on child and household indicators, IMMANA Grantees Amy Webb and Erin Lentz examined why women's empowerment matters; and reflect on the implications of its omission for women's health outcomes.
Animal-source foods (ASF) are some of the best sources of high-quality protein and micronutrients needed for healthy physical and cognitive development, especially among children. Livestock contributions to health and nutrition are complex, and are mediated through multiple pathways.
