The Integrating Gender and Nutrition within Agricultural Extension Services (INGENAES) project, funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), aims at supporting the Feed the Future Initiative and strives to increase agricultural productivity and the incomes of smallholder farming populations. Specifically, INGENAES supports the development of improved extension and advisory systems (EAS) to reduce gender gaps, increase empowerment of women farmers, and improve gender and nutrition integration within extension services by directly or indirectly assisting multiple types of stakeholders within a country, such as farmers, producer groups, cooperatives, policy makers, technical specialists, development non-governmental organization (NGO) practitioners, and donors. INGENAES works with USAID missions in several Feed the Future countries in Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America
