Social and Behaviour Change: Insights and Practice

This guide was prepared primarily for those people who participate in the implementation of the food and nutrition security programs of Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GTZ). It is recognizes thar producing enough food for consumption or income alone will not ensure the end of hunger and malnutrition, and that in order to help people improve their nutrition, you need to impact behavior.

That is, the people you are trying to benefit need to consume the right types of foods, in the right quantities, at the right times, and in the right way. Also, they need to ensure the retention of nutrients through optimal food preparation and hygiene practices.

This guide answers the following questions:

  • Where do you begin?
  • What essentials should you know?
  • What steps should you take?
  • What mistakes should you avoid?
  • What can you do on your own and where should you look for external assistance?
