Scaling up sweetpotato-led interventions for nutrition and food security, Tigray region, Ethiopia. Project profile.
Tigray is one of the regions in Ethiopia with the highest levels of maternal and child malnutrition and food insecurity. Grain-led approaches have failed to address these issues, with vitamin A deficiency rates remaining high. This intervention aims to tackle the problem by promoting greater dissemination of biofortified orange-fleshed sweetpotato.
