The aim of this webinar is to discuss how programmes promoting women’s empowerment can contribute to improved women’s nutrition and health. The concept of nutritional empowerment as a method to identify barriers to increased nutrition will be presented. UCC has recently undertaken research in Tigray Region to measure economic and nutritional empowerment. The webinar will present findings from research and case studies from Irish and other NGOs undertaking projects focussed on women’s empowerment. Discussion will explore lessons on programme design and implementation of development interventions which can simultaneously contribute to women’s empowerment and food security and nutrition to insure a better future.
