Join Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Nutrition in their upcoming webinar series. Designed to inform and engage stakeholders, this series will cover research conducted by the Innovation Lab for Nutrition and its stakeholders over the past ten years. During each webinar panelists will present findings from their research, discuss policy implications of these findings, discuss what needs to be done to better link research to practice, and identify research gaps for future consideration.
In Bangladesh, the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Nutrition's focus is on aquaculture programming, linked in various ways to horticulture promotion, innovations in drying and storage of products, and behavior change communication. Located in the Feed the Future zone of Bangladesh (the South-West), NIL works closely with local academic institutions, international partners (such as IFPRI), and implementing organizations (such as SPRING) to generate strong empirical evidence of how food choices are made, how diets change, and what impacts are possible on nutrition.
This webinar will cover NIL's research, findings, and innovative technologies in Bangladesh. Hear speakers explain how their efforts will contribute to a shared research agenda that will ultimately inform policy and programming within the context of USAID and globally. Registration is required for this event.
