Can WFP’s Food Assistance for Assets Contribute to Women’s Empowerment and Nutrition?

In 2017, the United Nations World Food Program published a report on a five-country study on how WFP’s Food Assistance for Assets (FFA) work can contribute to empowering women and improving their nutrition. In this blog, a Senior Consultant for WFP, Zalynn Peishi, highlights some of the study’s findings. The study found that FFA can contribute to women’s empowerment and improved women’s nutrition when FAA includes a range of components, including but not limited to transfers, sensitization, and technical training.
