Enhancing Food Security and Nutrition during the First 1000 Days through Gender-sensitive Social and Behavioural Change: A Technical Resource Guide
This technical resource guide is designed to build the capacity of development practitioners working in nutrition and food security to plan, implement, and evaluate gender-sensitive SBC programming in order to improve nutritional outcomes for pregnant and lactating women (PLW) and children under two. It does this by providing an overview, rationale, critical actions, best practices, resources, and tools for integrating gendersensitive SBC into project activities.
The technical resource guide seeks to achieve three main goals:
Increase the reader’s knowledge about the importance of gender-sensitive SBC programming in nutrition and food security programs/projects;
Strengthen the planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation (M&E), and documentation of gender-sensitive projects and gender mainstreaming of organizations to reduce gender gaps in nutrition outcomes; and
Share resources and tools to support gender-sensitive SBC programming
