Working Paper #1 Linking Small Holder Agriculture to School Food Provision

The first paper in the HGSF Working Paper Series, titled Linking Small Holder Agriculture to School Food Provision provides an overview of PCD's HGSF programme approach and is aimed at clarifying what HGSF is. The different elements of what is involved in the HGSF system are “unpacked” as a set of interventions aimed at delivering benefits across education, health, nutrition and agriculture development. 

The paper first describes the scoping analytical framework that was developed to examine the HGSF framework and possible designs for HGSF impact evaluations, some of the findings of the initial scoping analysis are then described before concluding remarks are made.
