This report evaluates Action Contre la Faim’s (ACF) pilot project "Nutrition Advocacy and Food Security" in Monrovia and peri-urban regions. It finds that the project made a significant contribution and has created a sound foundation for linking improvements in food security to reducing malnutrition amongst children in Liberia. Established in 2010, this ACF funded pilot project has successfully developed and tested a new integrated approach to tackling food insecurity and child malnutrition. Through the establishment of small gardens and promotion of urban and peri-urban agriculture, delivery of nutrition activities with local partners (ANDP and Ministry of Health and Social Welfare’s (MoHSW), the pilot has contributed to improvements in household food security and a reduction in child malnutrition.
