Abstract
The photo-book draws the attention to the implementation of the “Developing Capacity for Strengthening Food Security and Nutrition in Selected Countries of the Caucasus and Central Asia” project in Tajikistan, launched by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and funded by the Russian Federation. The project’s key purpose in Tajikistan is to boost the effectiveness and quality of the school nutrition program through the creation of school-based plots, produce from which will be used in the cafeteria in cooking tasty and nutritious breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. This book provides the "reader" with an insight into how growing vegetables in greenhouses can benefit schools, farmers, local communities and children in Tajikistan.
