Impacting Gender & Nutrition through Innovative Technical Exchange in Agriculture (IGNITE) works with African institutions to design, implement, and evaluate nutrition-sensitive and gender-integrated agriculture interventions. IGNITE also strengthens the ability of African institutions to incorporate nutrition and gender equality into their policy priorities and business practices—their way of doing business. Based on the interventions implemented by IGNITE clients, IGNITE identifies key mechanisms and drivers of demand for the scale up and replication of nutrition-sensitive and gender-integrated interventions. IGNITE activities are targeted in Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Nigeria, and Tanzania. Clients include NGOs, private sector companies, and government bodies.
- Strengthen African institutions to integrate nutrition-sensitive and gender-integrated approaches into their agriculture interventions and their way of doing business.
- Identify models that demonstrate ways of effectively and efficiently increasing both equitable consumption of safe, affordable, nutritious diets year-round and increased women’s empowerment in agriculture.
- Cultivate network of local service providers [LSP] to reach greater nutrition impact and gender equality in agriculture through ongoing technical assistance.
Tanager is supporting TADB in the integration of gender and nutrition in the TI3P project in Tanzania. Tanager seeks to engage a Gender and Nutrition consultant to conduct a Gender and Nutrition formative assessment, which will then inform the design of the Social Behavior Change Strategy for the TI3P project.
The consultant(s) should propose a research framework for this assignment drawing on commonly used gender and nutrition assessment frameworks to guide the data collection and analysis with attention to qualitative methods. The nutrition landscape should take into account guidelines for assessing food consumption patterns and nutrition outcomes of households in the TI3P project area.
