Description:

Seed security systems have a huge impact on human nutrition, and they are even more important for low-income communities, households, and individuals who primarily rely on subsistence farming for household food consumption. In this session, Catholic Relief Services (CRS) will lead a discussion on how seed security systems interventions can be effectively used to promote nutrition among vulnerable communities recovering from emergencies. Participants will learn about CRS’ Diversification for Nutrition and Enhanced Resilience (DiNER) fair methodology using case studies from coastal Kenya. Through small working group discussions, participants will gain a deeper understanding and be able to provide feedback on the methodology, as well as share their own experiences in implementing seed security interventions and its linkages to household nutrition.

Speakers:
