Competency Framework for Integrating Gender and Nutrition within Agricultural Extension Services

IGENENAES presents a framework to promote the skills, attitudes, and behaviors (SABs) needed at the individual level to deliver gender- and nutrition-informed agricultural extension services. The framework lays out a list of SABs, creates a menu of options for organizations to determine their level of support to frontline extension staff, and provides training session objectives for each SAB based on topic and level of engagement. The framework supports AES in their ability to increase production and supply of nutritious foods. Prospective users of this framework include non-governmental organizations, government agencies, universities, research institutions, farmer based organizations, private for profit input or service providers.
