Considerations for Implementing the Population-Based Survey
WEAI –Modules F, G, H, K
Women’s Empowerment in Agriculture Index
WEAI made up of five domains:
being tested in Bangladesh, Uganda, Guatemala
What leads to undernutrition?
Sanitation health services
Access to food
Maternal and child-care practices
Underlying causes at household/
Basic causes at societal level
POLITICAL & IDEOLOGICAL FRAMEWORK
ENVIRONMENT, TECHNOLOGY, PEOPLE

How do our FTF Indicators relate to causes of undernutrition?
Sustainably reduce poverty and hunger
Improved Nutritional status especially of women and children
Maternal and Child Care Practices
Improved nutrition related behaviors
Improved access to diverse and quality foods
Increased resilience of vulnerable communities and households
Improved use of maternal and child nutrition services
Access to Food
Water/ San Health Services
Women’s dietary Diversity & Minimum Acceptable Diet
Anemia in Women and Children
Exclusive Breast feeding
Household Hunger Scale

Dietary Modules L, M, N
Measuring Diet Across 1000 days
Preconception through pregnancy: WDD
6-24 months: Comple-mentaryfeeding
0-6 months: Exclusive breast-feeding
See WHO For full calculation instructions
Minimal Acceptable Diet for Children 6-23 Months (3)
Non-breastfed children 6–23 months of age who received at least 2 milk feedings and had at least the minimum dietary diversity not including dairy and the minimum meal frequency during the previous day
Breastfed children 6–23 months of age who had at least the minimum dietary diversity and the minimum meal frequency during the previous day
All children 6–23 months of age
Purpose: become familiar with the MAD module, with how the questions are asked, and how the indicator is computed.
Work at your tables with the exercise handout. Take 10 minutes to review the modules, and answer the questions on the exercise sheet
Which MAD module question(s)
Form a set with previous questions?
Establish if this indicator is relevant and if questions should continue?
Need to be adapted to Local context?
Feed into Dietary Diversity?
Feed into Minimum Feedings?
Have any other purpose?
Discuss how the questions that feed into minimum feedings and dietary diversity would be used to create the MAD indicator.
We’ll then reconvene in plenary and spend 5 minutes addressing any questions.
