Register for the webinar
About the webinar
Market systems offer a sustainable response to food security but can overlook important nutrition dynamics and outcomes if food systems are omitted.

Market-based approaches to food security often increase agricultural productivity and income yet sometimes fail to enhance nutrition. When food security programming combines market and food systems with a specific focus on women and girls, economic and nutrition outcomes benefit. Some elements from markets and food systems enhance nutrition outcomes when they are combined.

This webinar will explore:

  • A literature review of market and food systems
  • The Inclusive Market and Food Systems Model
  • The importance of bringing the market to vulnerable households
  • How empowering women multiplies nutritional outcomes
  • How access does not necessarily equal consumption
  • The impact of COVID-19 on programming and adaptive management for livelihood programs

The webinar is organized by World Vision, Catholic University of America, Care, and Abilene Christian University.
