The Infopoint lunchtime conference on Monitoring multi-sectoral interventions
for diverse diets and nutrition [1] focuses on the Global Programme Food and
Nutrition Security, Enhanced Resilience – financed by the BMZ´s ONE WORLD
– No Hunger Initiative – which aims to improve the food and nutrition
situation of women and small children. Websteraming will be available here
[2].

DEVCO cooperates with BMZ and GIZ for the promotion of nutrition-sensitive
agriculture interventions. Within the last year the Programme conducted ten
Baseline Studies in ten Countries (Benin, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Ethiopia,
India, Kenia, Malawi, Mali, Togo, and Zambia) in order to get an overview of
the food and nutrition situation. The Programme conducted interviews with
more than 4,000 women living in rural areas in Africa and Asia. One objective
was to obtain data regarding the prevalence of children receiving a minimum
acceptable diet (MAD) and the degree of dietary diversity of women of
reproductive age (IDDS/MDD-W) as they are generally more affected by
malnutrition than other persons.
