ICTs for Nutrition, Agriculture, and Time Use - Can We Do Better Than 24-hour Recall?

Over the past 50 years, understandings of the best ways to combat malnutrition among women and children globally have changed, along with the technology that exists to fight it. The IMMANA-funded "Using Information Communication Technologies" (ICTs) project seeks to understand the relationships between labor-saving agricultural innovations, women’s time use and maternal and child nutrition outcomes in rural Uganda. Reflecting on early lessons learned from the project, this blog calls for a viable alternative to recall methods for diet and time use data collection in rural low-income communities, which could be a game-changer in the field of nutrition-sensitive agriculture.
