Feed the Future highlights an INGENAES training on integrating gender within agricultural value chain and agro-enterprise initiatives held December 7-9, 2016 at Mukono Zonal Agricultural Research and Development Institute (MUZARDI) in Mukono, Uganda. The goal of the workshop was to build capacity and provide critical technical assistance to Farmer Based Organizations (FBOs) to purposely integrate gender and nutrition concerns within their existing and planned agroenterprise initiatives. The training concluded with participants drawing up a list of action items to implement in their communities and organizations, including the creation of strategic plans to integrate gender and nutrition, conducting nutrition trainings, and sensitizing/education community leaders and board members to the role of gender in nutrition-related activities.
