WFP Mozambique’s multisectoral Gender Transformative and Nutrition-sensitive (GTNS) stunting prevention project in Chemba district, Sofala province is implemented with the generous contribution by the Austrian Development Agency (ADA). The project consists of a complementary package of services, including training and tools for climate resilient agriculture; training and technology to reduce post-harvest loss (PHL); food assistance for assets (FFA); and comprehensive social and behaviour change communication (SBCC) to promote key messages on nutrition, sexual and reproductive health and positive gender relationships. This innovative programme in Mulima locality of Chemba district aims to reduce stunting by focusing on women’s empowerment as a way to ensure children eat a nutritious diet. The project targets 1,500 households (7,500 people) which contain adolescent girls, pregnant and lactating women (PLW), children under 2 and women with obstetric fistula. To track on-going progress of the project, see dashboards in English and in Portuguese.
