Results achieved

In Fort Portal, Uganda, a local food lab partner convinced policymakers to include nutrition in the district production and environment ordinance using evidence from food diaries kept by local mothers. In Bolivia, four partner organizations have connected different food networks with more than 50 local and national institutions. Advocacy in Zambia has led to the elimination of government subsidies for maize only and extending the e-voucher system to include diverse agriculture and crops produced by women. At major global conferences, Hivos and our partners have achieved broader acceptance for our approaches to transforming the food system.
