LINKING AGRICULTURE AND NATURAL RESOURCE MANAGEMENT TOWARDS NUTRITION SECURITY
With the specific aim of promoting behaviors to improve nutrition security, the LANN+ approach seeks to empower rural households to plan for and sustainably practice nutrition-sensitive strategies.
Welthungerhilfe uses LANN+ as a nutrition-sensitive response for rural communities highly affected by malnutrition, where the people are typically small-holder farmers and mostly draw their food and livelihoods from the natural environment. Many of the targeted communities are situated in ecologically and climatically vulnerable regions. For these communities, diets, food systems and the use of natural resources are inextricably linked.
