Local Innovation for Nutrition Solutions Project
Commercial Agriculture/Agribusiness

Uganda faces challenges of undernutrition and micronutrient deficiencies that are associated with higher risk of infections and poor childhood developmental and cognitive outcomes. Malnutrition experienced during the critical 1,000-day window of opportunity (from conception of a child to its second birthday) has irreversible outcomes. Rhino camp and Kyaka II refugee settlements in Uganda indicate medium and very high stunting rates of 12.7% and 48.7% respectively (UNHCR & UBOS, 2020). In spite of the fact that the country has progressed in reducing malnutrition, the pace is still slow specifically in relation to chronic malnutrition. The key underlying causes of malnutrition are widely understood to be: i. household food insecurity, ii. Inadequate care and feeding practices, iii. Unhealthy household environments and iv. Inadequate health services. Numerous projects are tackling this challenge both in Uganda and globally. However, typically they have been focusing on sensitizing mothers on good feeding and care practices, free distribution of aid-funded complementary foods to communities at risk of malnutrition or commercial-level production of blended fortified foods With the Nutrition Innovation Challenge Fund, the focus is on supporting alternative and innovative solutions that will be more sustainable and less dependent on aid funding.
