Tanzania, Peru and Indonesia : Empowering Young Potential Change-Makers \ Urban agriculture magazine / Resource Centre for Urban Agriculture (RUAF) [Article]
Geerardyn, T. \ 2018
urban areas - towns - agriculture - food production - farming systems - peasant farming - allotment gardens

Abstract:
Two young Peruvian women stand proudly in front of a small stand, offering cake, chocolate, tea and a conversation to anyone who wants a taste of their home-made products. The products are based on the herb muña, a plant packed with nutrients, also referred to as Andean Mint and found throughout the Andes. Their goal is to make the plant popular in Peru and to promote local culture and healthy eating habits. With this initiative, these young women are trying to contribute to a healthier, more sustainable food system.

Youth, Employment and Migration: Urban opportunities, with a focus on Africa \ Urban agriculture magazine / Resource Centre for Urban Agriculture (RUAF) [Article]
Dietz, T. \ 2018
urban areas - towns - agriculture - food production - farming systems - peasant farming - allotment gardens

Abstract:
Demographically, Africa has become the big exception. On a continental scale, Asia, Oceania and Latin America – like Europe, and North America before it – reached demographic stability between 2000 and 2015. Average fertility rates on these continents plunged from more than five or six children per woman in the 1960s to an average of around two in recent years, and in Europe considerably lower still. Africa as well is experiencing a process of demographic transition, yet there are differences: Africa began at a higher level (more than seven children per woman in the 1960s and 1970s), and the pace of transition is much slower than, for instance, in Asia. Currently the fertility rates for Africa as a whole are still beyond four children per woman, and UN demographers expect that Africa will not reach demographic stability until around 2100.

Commercially viable agriculture and consumption of nutritious foods: a framework for identifying development pathways : a desk review [Monograph]
Herens, Marion \ Peters, Bram \ Brouwers, Jan \ Bosch, Diane \ Maden, Edwin van der \ Linderhof, Vincent \ Verhagen, Jan \ 2018

Abstract:
Food systems in low and middle income countries are changing rapidly in response to economic and market developments, environmental impacts, and dietary changes. Within this context, informed policy and sustainable development processes are needed to shape climate-smart and resilient food systems for food and nutrition security at farming household level. This research project aimed to a) explore the complexity of the contextual dynamics in which smallholder farming households operate; and b) contribute to a better conceptual understanding of commercial food production strategies in relation to consumption choices. A literature review was conducted, exploring both scientific and grey literature, in parallel to consultation rounds with a multidisciplinary team of agronomists, economists, nutritionists and international development specialists to explore existing insights, align available expertise, and find common ground on how to create a useful framework that would fit the specific interests and expertise of each of the actors involved. Key elements for our framework were preliminary drawn from existing frameworks. A number of - non-exclusive - pathways were identified. These include subsistence-oriented production for the household’s own consumption (source of food), whereby women – as producers as well as care takers - are seen as the crucial agents for household food security and health outcomes; production for sale in markets (source of income); and agricultural policies (national and global), affecting a range of supply and demand factors that establish the price of marketed food and non-food crops (food price policies). The important characteristics for the framework for viable commercial agriculture and consumption of nutritious foods evolve around different aggregation levels: the individual (gender and power dynamics), the household (household food production, income generation, food purchase choices, care practices, access to health care), the community (employment opportunity, collaboration, microfinance, care and social (infra)structure), and the regional/nation (price and trade policy) level.

Sustainable nutrition for all phase II : report Baseline KAP surveys [Monograph]
Pastori, Giulia \ Bakker, Sanne \ Herens, Marion \ 2018

Abstract:
This report presents the findings of baseline and Knowledge Attitude and Practises (KAP) surveys for the second phase of the Sustainable Nutrition for All (SN4A) project implemented by SNV Netherlands Development Organisation in Zambia and Uganda in collaboration with Wageningen Centre for Development Innovation (WCDI). The project is funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC). The first phase of the SN4A project started in January 2015 and ended in December 2017, covering two districts in Uganda (Kasese and Kyenjojo) and two districts in Zambia (Isoka and Chinsali). A second phase of SN4A started in 2018, wherein the project will be scaled up to two new districts, Kakumiro in Uganda and Kasama in Zambia. In phase II, as in phase I, there will be a focus on improved nutrition and improved dietary diversity, and on the sustainability, scalability and replicability of the model. A baseline survey was conducted to assess dietary diversity, agrobiodiversity, gender dynamics and nutritional status in the new districts of intervention, alongside a KAP survey to build a more in-depth understanding of the critical behavioural components - knowledge, attitudes and practices – relating to the intervention strategy of SN4A Phase II. The report concludes with recommendations for the design of the activities planned for SN4A phase II corresponding to the key survey findings. Low dietary diversity was observed in women and children, emphasising WASH components in the intervention strategy is critical, and attention should be paid to mixed livelihood strategies, as poverty is a major concern in all districts.

Income intervention quick scan: poverty graduation: Farmer Income Lab Intervention quick scan [Monograph]
Saxena, Rachna \ Colvin, Robert \ Isa-Odidi, Layusa \ 2018

Abstract:
This quick scan, commissioned by the Farmer Income Lab, is part of a wider research effort looking at, “What are the most effective actions that lead buyers can take to enable smallholder farmers in global supply chains to meaningfully increase their incomes?”. The quick scan provides an overview of the publicly available evidence on the impact of poverty graduation programs have had on raising farmer income. Such subsidies have had little positive effect on farmer income, are not notably beneficial for women nor is this effect long-term. They have been applied at large scale. This quick scan is part of a series of 16, contributing to a synthesis report “What Works to Raise Farmer’s Income: a Landscape Review”
