Christian Aid has received £ 2.6M funding from UK Aid to implement a nutrition-sensitive agriculture project in Aweil North and Jur River counties of Northern and Western Bahr El Chazal states respectively. This nutrition-sensitive agriculture project aims to contribute to improved nutrition outcomes for women and girls of childbearing age and children under five years. To do this, Christian Aid is implementing a holistic program that increases the resilience to the risk of undernutrition by using an inclusive and integrated nutrition-sensitive approach that promotes individual, household and community resilience to the risks of undernutrition. This will be achieved through multi-sectoral linkages, increased integration through implementation of strategies to address underlying causes of undernutrition, empowering women, girls, men and their households to improve their household nutrition and care practices, access to diverse nutritious food, safe water and sanitation, health services, and overcome gender and social norms barriers. Furthermore, this project also strengthens the capacity of the nutrition departments in the two counties to improve the coordination and delivery of nutrition services.
