Life Beyond Maize

This seven-minute video shows Zambia's double malnutrition burden: stunting and overweight. A major cause is the limited diversity of Zambia’s food production and consumption: 94 percent of agricultural produce is maize. The Hivos and IIED Sustainable Diets for All programme helps develop and implement policies that diversify Zambian production and supports consumers to diversify their diets. Food diversity counts!
