Evidence from a nutrition-and gender-sensitive agriculture project in Zambia

The RAIN project benefited women and children in many ways.It improved several aspects of women’s empowerment and IYCF knowledge, and reduced child diarrhoea.  

RAIN, however, had limited impacts on IYCF practices and no impact on child stunting ( (the impaired growth and development that children experience from poor nutrition, repeated infection, and inadequate psychosocial stimulation). Strengthening programme implementation and fostering higher participation rates could support greater impacts on child nutrition outcomes.
