Presenter: Anne Swindale (USAID BFS)
Objective: Participants will understand the linkages between the Feed the Future Results Framework and the Agriculture-Nutrition Pathways. The session will present Feed the Future/Malawi’s Integrated Nutrition and Value Chain (INVC) project’s approach to performance monitoring and learning. INVC’s performance indicators and data collection processes will serve as an example of monitoring steps along the pathway to improve access to diverse and quality foods and will illustrate synergy of value chain and nutrition activities. The session will clarify what indicators and outcomes can be measured at a project level vs. the Feed the Future Zone of Influence level.

This day-long event focused on a key priority in the U.S. Government’s international development and investment strategy: the integration of agriculture and nutrition strategies and activities.
