Graduation and Food Security
By Elaina Conrad • September 22, 2021 • 1 minute read
Graduation promotes food security holistically so that participating households can experience long-term improvements in their household nutritional status. From the start of the program, BRAC often considers chronic food insecurity in its multidimensional evaluation of and targeting of participant households. By supporting participants to develop diversified income-generating activities both on- and off-farm, BRAC enables them to meet their basic needs while improving their resilience to climate and market stressors. Training on managing livelihoods, health and hygiene practices, and nutrition education help to ensure that participants have the tools they need to maximize their food security status and maintain resilience to shocks.
