The overall objective of LANN+ is to achieve nutrition security through behavior change and empowerment. The project works with several intermediary organizations and actors, including female health workers (FCHVs), elected local government at the community and association level, leading farmers, local resource persons (LRPs), local stakeholders, agricultural advisors, government health workers, farmers’ groups, traders of agricultural goods and services. One of the project’s key objectives is to empower socially marginalized and economically poor citizens to reinforce their resilience and ensure their right to adequate food and nutrition. The project has adopted advocacy as one of the key tools to ensure the rights of the socially vulnerable group and scaling up of LANN+ approach at three tiers of government i.e., local, provincial, and federal levels. The project envisions the advocacy strategy will contribute to the sensitization of citizens and CBOs and bring recognition and integration of the LANN+ approach in nutrition and food security-related local, provincial, and national programs and policies.
