The conversion is made easily by inserting a perforated metal plate in between the upper and bottom bricks as per the photos below. Again, you can also insert a developed holed thin clay sheet.

PRIORITY THEME: Strategies for eradicating poverty to achieve sustainable development for all

VENUE: Conference Room D; United Nations Headquarters in New York;

SIDE EVENT ORGANIZER: Kikandwa Rural Communities Development Organization (KIRUCODO)

MAIN SIDE EVEN SPONSORS: Global Open Data for Agriculture and Nutrition (GODAN) and Women Thrive


Session Abstract:

The Global Nutrition Report 2017 calls for nutrition to be placed at the heart of efforts to end poverty, fight diseases, raise educational standards and tackle climate change.

According to Akinwumi Adesina President of African Development Bank,  Africa’s economic progress is being undermined by hunger, malnutrition and stunting, which cost at least US$25 billion annually in sub-Saharan Africa, and leave a lasting legacy of loss, pain and ruined potential. Stunted children today lead to stunted economies tomorrow.

Over 75% of the population in Sub-Sahara Africa depends on Agriculture as main source of income and daily food supply. However, with the growing population, land for agriculture is becoming minimal and demand for food is rapidly increasing every now and then. Making Agriculture and Nutrition data open, as well as building capacities of smallholder farmers in Profitable and Sustainable Small-Scale Agribusiness ventures (PS3AgriVents) is key in eradicating poverty and improving nutrition at household level. Further, Investing in gender equality and women empowerment can unlock human potential on a transformational scale because according to the World Bank Women account for one-half of the potential human capital in any economy and they make up 40 percent of the agriculture labor force.

During the session, experiences will be shared about such PS3AgriVents which have been tested and currently changing lives in poor rural households in Uganda. Further, strategies will be discussed in connection to benefits of making Agriculture and Nutrition Data Open, market access, appropriates technologies, gender equality in relation to property ownership, access to startup capital, and value addition of agricultural produces before put on market.
