Nutrition Zambezia

The Zambezia Nutrition Project seeks to address malnutrition issues in support of national poverty reduction and health policies, including the Strategic Plan for Artisanal Fisheries, recognising that artisanal fishing is very relevant to food security in Mozambique.

 

The project’s target group is women of reproductive age and children from the coastal communities and small-scale fishing families in four growth poles in Zambezia Province namely Cuassiane, Pebane, Zalala and Quelimane.

 

The main objective of the Nutrition Project is to contribute to improving food diversity by reducing the high levels of malnutrition, and to improve nutritional knowledge and practices among fishing families in the 4 selected growth poles.
