Home-Grown School Feeding in West Africa: A Landscape Analysis

The landscape of Home-Grown School Feeding (HGSF) programmes within the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) region has undergone significant evolution since the last assessment in 2020. The Landscape Analysis, prepared in May 20242 by the UN World Food Programme (WFP), ECOWAS and the School Meals Coalition, with the contribution of CERFAM and the Research Consortium for School Health and Nutrition, an Initiative of the School Meals Coalition, provides a comparative analysis across six domains, offering insights into the evolving dynamics, challenges, and best practices within the realm of HGSF. It serves also as a comprehensive resource for navigating the complexities and opportunities inherent in HGSF implementation across ECOWAS countries.
