New grant to reduce food insecurity in rural Tanzania

Rachel Bezner Kerr, Elias Mtinda at Action Aid Tanzania, and I have been awarded a grant from the McKnight Foundation. This will fund a three-year farmer-led agroecological education intervention, called SNAP: Singida Nutrition and Agroecology Project. We will be assessing the impacts of this intervention on legume production, food insecurity, and infant and young child feeding practices, among other outcoms. We will start research activities in Singida, Tanzania in early 2016.
