    This document is aimed at presenting the systematization of the sustainable schools model pilot implementation in Belize, within the framework of Mesoamerica Hunger Free AMEXCID-FAO programme, and it describes the implementation process of the pilot project, from its beginning in early 2016 to November 2018. The document includes a critical analysis of the implementation of the six components of the sustainable schools model, focusing on its process, challenges, results, as well as on the lessons learned and best practices identified. It also includes recommendations for scaling-up the sustainable schools model and for the improvement and strengthening of the national school feeding program in the country. It is expected that this publication will contribute to the strengthening of the coordination among the sectors involved in school feeding and the institutionalization and sustainability of the school feeding policies in Belize.

    Aligning public procurement rules and practices to support the implementation of home-grown school feeding (HGSF) initiatives: the case of Senegal

    This report aims to inform about the alignment of public procurement rules and practices to support the implementation of government-led home-grown school feeding (HGSF) initiatives in Senegal. HGSF can be understood as a school feeding model that is designed to provide children in schools with safe, varied and nutritious food which is sourced locally from smallholders.

    Distributional impacts of home-grown school feeding and conservation agriculture in Zambia​ 2021
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The aim of this study is to explore the distributional impacts on poverty and income of two programmes in Zambia, the Home Grown School Feeding (HGSF) programme and the Conservation Agriculture Scale-Up (CASU) project, complementing the impact evaluation findings by Prifti & Grinspun (2019). These programmes target different parts of the population but are partly overlapping; they aim to influence poverty and food security through different channels. In the World Food Programme (WFP)’s HGSF modality, school feeding or provision of free meals for schoolchildren is complemented with procurement of food used for the meals from local smallholders. The purchase scheme aims to provide market access for smallholders, hence improving income stability and incentives to invest, ultimately increasing their productivity and reducing poverty. The objectives of school meals alone are improvement in schoolchildren’s nutrition as well as improvement in school attendance and hence human capital accumulation. Conservation agriculture (CA) consists of production methods that reduce farmers’ vulnerability to climate risks and improve productivity. The CASU programme promoted the use of such methods among smallholders through training and demonstration and provision of inputs, aiming for adoption of more sustainable farming which increases farm productivity in the long run.
