Pastori, Giulia; Bakker, Sanne; Herens, M.C.

Summary

This report presents the findings of baseline and Knowledge Attitude and Practises (KAP) surveys for the second phase of the Sustainable Nutrition for All (SN4A) project implemented by SNV Netherlands Development Organisation in Zambia and Uganda in collaboration with Wageningen Centre for Development Innovation (WCDI). The project is funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC). The first phase of the SN4A project started in January 2015 and ended in December 2017, covering two districts in Uganda (Kasese and Kyenjojo) and two districts in Zambia (Isoka and Chinsali). A second phase of SN4A started in 2018, wherein the project will be scaled up to two new districts, Kakumiro in Uganda and Kasama in Zambia. In phase II, as in phase I, there will be a focus on improved nutrition and improved dietary diversity, and on the sustainability, scalability and replicability of the model. A baseline survey was conducted to assess dietary diversity, agro-biodiversity, gender dynamics and nutritional status in the new districts of intervention, alongside a KAP survey to build a more in-depth understanding of the critical behavioural components - knowledge, attitudes and practices – relating to the intervention strategy of SN4A Phase II. The report concludes with recommendations for the design of the activities planned for SN4A phase II corresponding to the key survey findings. Low dietary diversity was observed in women and children, emphasising WASH components in the intervention strategy is critical, and attention should be paid to mixed livelihood strategies, as poverty is a major concern in all districts.
