How can extension build on its "core competencies" in improving household food security to lay the foundation for better nutrition? This discussion paper explores the conceptual linkages between agricultural extension, gender equity, and nutrition; it provides concrete examples of planning and implementing nutrition-sensitive, gender-responsive agricultural extension; and it supports building and leveraging cross-sectoral collaboration. The paper provides a path on which agricultural extension can support nutritious food systems without becoming overburdened.
