Problem: Women and young children in fragile environments sometimes lack micronutrient including zinc, as well as critical amino acids that are deficient in cereals (lysine, methionine, tryptophan).


Our Solutions:


•We are promoting biodiversity seed kits. These seed kits: (1) promote home gardens to diversify the crops grown to buffer against climate change; (2) contain a number of locally suitable, climate-resilient or stress-tolerant crops; (3) generate high value income for women; and (4) include crop varieties that are rich in micronutrients essential for pregnant and lactating women and children (iron, zinc, folic acid, vitamin A).
