Elise Talsma (Wageningen University) and Diana Carolina Lopera (CIAT), two members of the CIAT team awardee of one of IMMANA (Innovative Methods and Metrics for Agriculture and Nutrition Action) grants, took part in the 3rd Annual Agriculture, Nutrition & Health (ANH) Academy  Week, in Accra, Ghana, from 25 to 29 June 2018. The conference is organized by the Leverhulme Centre for Integrative Research on Agriculture and Health (LCIRAH), IMMANA, and the CGIAR Research Program on Agriculture for Nutrition and Health (A4NH), and it is considered a great opportunity for those who work in agriculture, nutrition, and health to exchange their experiences and research work in a multidisciplinary environment.

The team showcased their grant-winning project “His and Hers, time and income: how intra-household dynamics impact nutrition in agricultural households” during the session titled “Drivers of Food Choice”.

As decision making is difficult to observe and measure, CIAT’s team is expecting to make an important contribution to the available literature on how to measure intra-family dynamics to better understand key factors in decision-making processes, especially the ones related to food consumption and diet diversity, providing evidence by testing new methodologies.
