    In Eastern Africa, over three-quarters of the population cannot afford healthy diets, imposing high social and economic impacts on most countries. Therefore, transforming agrifood systems is critical to achieving food security and affordable, healthy diets for improved nutrition. One way FAO supports the agrifood system transformation is through the capacity development of relevant stakeholders to mainstream nutrition into national policies, programmes, strategic and investment plans. Training activities are predominantly carried out in person, but in 2020, these were suspended due to the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) crisis. To meet the ongoing needs, the FAO Sub-Regional Office for Eastern Africa continued its capacity development initiatives through innovative modalities, such as the blended learning approach. The blended learning approach combines aspects of online and face-to-face instruction and was used for trainings in two countries: Eritrea and Somaliland. This brochure contains good practices and lessons learned from these trainings that can be used to inform the planning of similar capacity development activities in the future.
