In November 2022, the National Cooperative Business Association CLUSA International (NCBA CLUSA) will close out the five-year Feed the Future Kawolor Activity in Senegal. Kawolor is an activity funded by USAID/Senegal as part of its contribution to the Senegalese Government’s strategy in the fight malnutrition, food insecurity and poverty.
This project aimed to curb malnutrition and provide food security to Senegal by empowering organizations and regional resources partners to scale up the Nutrition Led Agriculture (NLA) approach and utilize market opportunities for sustainability. Through its NLA market-based food systems approach, Kawolor empowered women’s groups, farming communities, municipal governments, and agribusinesses to increase their economic opportunities. NCBA CLUSA partnered with Helen Keller International (HKI), JSI Research and Training Institute (JSI), and Sheladia Associates, Inc. in implementing Kawolor.
To celebrate the impact and legacy of the activity, NCBA CLUSA is hosting a webinar on Wednesday, November 2, 2022 from 10:00 – 11:00 AM EST. The discussion will highlight the Nutrition Led Agriculture (NLA) approach, including fundamental principles, implementation, tools, challenges and successes, and long-term aspects of the approach.
The presentation will be moderated by Ms. Carrie Teiken, USAID Senegal’s Agreement Officer Representative for Kawolor, and feature Mr. Karl Rosenberg, Kawolor Chief of Party, Ms. Fatou Kiné Diop SALL, Kawolor’s Deputy Chief of Party for Technical Approach, and Mr. Papa Sene, Kawolor Senior Technical Advisor and NCBA CLUSA technical guide.
