Join the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Nutrition for a webinar that will examine patterns in dietary diversity and quality in South Asian and Sub-Saharan African contexts. Speakers will assess how crop and livestock production influence dietary diversity and its components, how seasonality influences consumption of non-staple foods, and will discuss the implications of seasonality for the use of dietary diversity indicators to measure progress over time.
