Agriculture for Nutrition? Not Without Gender!

This blog by Nitya Rao from Leveraging Agriculture for Nutrition in South Asia (LANSA) examines gender dynamics and the need for better data to understand how gender can contribute to better nutrition through agriculture. Rao describes divisions of labor and the tradeoffs of work versus care and the need to keep men involved in nutritional outcomes as women become more empowered. The blog suggests a gender lens be applied to future efforts to study and understand the links between agriculture and nutrition.
