Colleagues - 

Are you interested in hearing examples of how food security and nutrition implementers have integrated gender and social and behavior change into nutrition-sensitive agriculture projects? Would you like to hear the experiences of other implementers and have the opportunity to ask them questions directly?

If so, then we hope you will join us for the first of a series of monthly web events for members of the Nutrition and Agriculture Linkages in Africa Network (NALAN) discussion group.

Title: Integrating Gender and Social and Behavioral Change into Ag-Nutrition Programs

When: Tuesday, December 10, at 9:00 a.m. EST (Washington), 2:00 p.m. (GMT - Dakar, Ouagadougou), 3:00 p.m. (WAT - Niamey), 4:00 p.m. (CAT - Burundi), 5:00 p.m. (EAT - Nairobi, Kampala, Addis Ababa).

If you are interested in joining the web event, please contact Patrick Coonan ( to add your name to the list.

In addition, if you have not yet completed the NALAN survey, then you will need to complete the survey before receiving the call-in information for this meeting. You can find the survey here:

These web events are being organized by a few members of NALAN who are hoping to create more opportunities for discussion and knowledge sharing. Please let us know if you would like to get more involved in the planning of these calls (and other activities for the group).

We hope you'll join us!
