Food Systems and Sustainable Diets

This course explores food systems - primarily as food supply chains (e.g., production, processing, distribution and consumption of food) - within the context of social, economic, governance, health, and environmental dimensions of sustainability. Systems-based frameworks are the basis for understanding how to translate conceptual models into applications for programs and policy-making by government agencies, food industry sectors, NGOs, and educators.         

UBALE: United in Building and Advancing Life Expectations

UBALE, which means partnership in Chichewa and also stands for United in Building and Advancing Life Expectations, is a key element of USAID’s comprehensive development cooperation strategy in Malawi. The project is implemented with local NGOs through existing government structures in three food-insecure, chronically malnourished and disaster-prone districts of Southern Malawi: Chikwawa, Nsanje, and rural Blantyre, where UBALE aims to reach all 284 communities totaling about 248,000 households with an integrated set of agricultural and nutritional interventions.
