Agricultural livelihoods and nutrition – exploring the links with women in

July 9, 2014

This article examines food security, nutrition, and women’s agricultural livelihoods in Western Province, Zambia. It draws on data from field research supported by Concern Worldwide UK. The research aimed to explore links between food procurement, livelihoods and care at the household level, and recognises the role of institutions and access to assets in shaping livelihood choices by women. Women describe agriculture as the principal route out of food insecurity, and also as a means to a stable livelihood. However, more support is required for women’s livelihood activities including agriculture, to enable women to produce enough food to feed themselves and their families.
