Victor Pinga on the USAID-backed SPRING project

Victor Pinga presented the Strengthening Partnerships, Results, and Innovations in Nutrition Globally (SPRING) project, a USAID-funded cooperative agreement to strengthen global and country efforts in scaling up high-impact nutrition practices, and policies.

Mr. Pinga outlined SPRING’s agricultural work with groundnuts in Northern Ghana, highlighting the programme contributions to women’s empowerment and aflatoxin control through innovations in food storage and processing, labour and time saving technologies, as well as nutrition education. In Sierra Leone, SPRING designed a study analysing the barriers and enablers to NSA, focusing on two promising value chains that may increase biodiversity: fish and pumpkin. The analysis specifically looked at aspects that affect underlying determinants of nutrition; its findings will be used to develop behaviour change strategies for actors within these value chains.
