The ENACT course: education for effective nutrition in action

ENACT is a course for professional development in nutrition education. FAO developed the course between 2012 and 2016 after a needs assessment exercise revealed that professional training in this field was almost non-existent and that nutrition education often failed to go beyond imparting information and advice. The ENACT course uses a practical approach to nutrition education that has students practicing what they have learned, reflecting on problems and case studies, and discussing what works and why. It consists of ten units, plus one optional unit (5A Theory) that cover the basic principles and practice of nutrition education, and includes activities designed to [...]

The proportion of people suffering from hunger has been halved and the progress toward reducing under-nourishment has been commendable. However, 44 percent of Rwandans still live under the national poverty line.

Promoting Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment in Fisheries and Aquaculture

This fact sheet presents an overview of current gender equality and women’s empowerment issues in the fisheries sector. Women’s engagement in fisheries can be viewed from social, political and technical perspectives, all of which show that the role of women is often underestimated. This inadequate recognition of women’s contributions hampers the sustainable development process, resulting in increased poverty and food insecurity. This fact sheet provides information on policy, institutions and planning processes; statistical dimensions in gender analysis; and specific concerns in the field of fisheries industries. It identifies lessons learned and opportunities for gender mainstreaming at macro, meso and microoperational levels. The information provided does not represent an exhaustive analysis of the subject, [...]
