    use of food health services and caregiving at the individual household and community levels This involves considering women s empowerment beyond its relationship to increased production and income and identifying additional pathways of influence that can improve the health and nutrition of beneficiaries of agricultural development projects PDF 343 KB Such dimensions may lie outside the purview of traditional agricultural programming yet have been shown to be key to achieving good nutritional outcomes GAAP2 Inception Workshop photo credit Stephan Dohrn Radical Inclusion Meeting project needs At the GAAP2 inception workshop in Nairobi program implementers and evaluators voiced the types of women s empowerment indicators that they need for their nutrition sensitive interventions Women often face barriers to optimizing nutritional inputs and these barriers differ from those they face when participating in production activities Social norms may dictate who has first access to food what women and children can eat and how or when healthcare is accessed Moreover intra household dynamics may enhance or limit whether women s empowerment in agriculture translates into improved nutrition Across project sites in South Asia and Africa South of the Sahara practitioners expressed the importance of women s access to and control over resources and their input into decisions that matter for improving their own nutrition as well as that of their children and families For instance a pregnant woman in Bangladesh may be influenced by her mother or mother in law to consume less food in the hopes of a smaller baby and easier labor Or despite her primary role in raising poultry a woman in Uganda may be instructed by her husband to sell all the eggs rather than to reserve some to feed them to her young child Across these various contexts workshop participants agreed that indicators to capture women s empowerment related to nutrition are needed Photo credit Pradan Identifying domains relevant for nutrition Improving nutritional outcomes involves empowering women across multiple domains Undernutrition is a result of poor diet and illness which are caused by underlying conditions of food insecurity inadequate health services unhygienic environments and inadequate care UNICEF 1990 Any areas of women s empowerment that directly affect nutrition would operate via their influence on these domains of food health and care Thus indicators should emphasize the control of inputs and the social dynamics around these domains Working groups throughout the workshop highlighted the domains in which women may be empowered or disempowered to optimize these inputs We began to unravel these pathways and discussed how we might go about measuring them For example food inputs may rely both on women being able to produce nutrient rich foods and whether they can allocate the nutrient rich foods that they produce to household members in need of these nutrients Seeking preventative and curative healthcare important inputs for improved nutrition may depend on women s freedom of movement access to resources to pay for services and intra household dynamics that dictate whether women can make these decisions Whereas many other aspects
