In the quest to combat malnutrition and ensure food security, nutrition-sensitive and nutrition resilience programming have emerged as critical approaches that address the underlying causes of nutritional challenges. Nutrition-sensitive programming focuses on integrating nutrition considerations into various sectors such as agriculture, health, and social protection, while nutrition resilience programming aims to build communities' ability to withstand and recover from nutrition-related shocks and stresses. This comprehensive training program is designed to equip participants with the knowledge and skills needed to design, implement, and evaluate effective nutrition-sensitive and resilience-building interventions. By fostering an understanding of the complex interactions between food, health, and livelihoods, this course empowers individuals and organizations to contribute to healthier and more resilient communities.

Course Objectives:

The primary objectives of this training program are as follows:

  • Holistic Understanding: Participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of the principles and concepts underlying nutrition-sensitive and nutrition resilience programming. This includes recognizing the multi-sectoral nature of nutrition and its links to broader development goals.
  • Practical Implementation: The course aims to provide participants with practical tools and strategies to design, implement, and monitor nutrition-sensitive and resilience-building interventions. This involves integrating nutrition considerations into diverse programs and developing adaptive strategies.
  • Impactful Interventions: By delving into case studies and real-world examples, participants will learn to identify context-specific challenges and opportunities for nutrition-sensitive and resilience-focused interventions that address the unique needs of communities.
