Sustainable food systems are imperative to feeding the global population, and these systems are of particular importance among the poor. In Zambia, fish is of particular importance in diets to meet the needs for essential micronutrients, essential fatty acids and animal protein. Much of the fish consumed in Zambia, especially by the poor is processed fish – sun-dried, salted or smoked. A recent study has shown that fish intake is associated with a lower level of stunting in urban poor children in Lusaka. We wish to improve on the value chains of fish, in order to increase year-round fish consumption to make diets more nutritious.
The objective of this internship is to work with communities and partners in Northern Province, Zambia to assess the present use and develop nutritious and safe products, using locally available nutritious foods, fish, beans and vegetables. This internship builds on work already initiated in Northern Province by WorldFish, in partnership with local and national government institutions and non-government organizations and also in rural Malawi.
