Nutrition-sensitive agriculture offers great potential for Sustainable Development Goal 2 (SDG 2: Zero Hunger) as it connects agricultural development to improved nutrition outcomes. Examples of nutrition-sensitive agriculture interventions are bio-fortification, home vegetable gardens, and small animal rearing (Ruel et al. 2018). Since many nutrition-sensitive agriculture interventions have been applied in recent years, this event aims to: 1) Take stock of what we have learned so far about nutrition-sensitive agriculture, i.e. what works and what does not work, and under what conditions? 2) Share and discuss this knowledge with practitioners in the field (e.g. farmers, extension workers, NGOs and policy makers) and 3) Turn the evidence base into concrete recommendations for practitioners to implement effective nutrition-sensitive interventions in agricultural development.
