TARINA lays out three main objectives around technical assistance, evidence generation and capacity building. Each of these objectives is realized through a set of intermediate results that have been devised to underwrite the project’s overarching goal to create a more nutrition-sensitive food system in India.
Better Market Access
TARINA develops ways to increase market access for farmers. TARINA interventions and research strengthen market linkages for the production, sale, and consumption of diverse crops, dairy, and small ruminants.
Behavior Change for Better Nutrition
TARINA works to effect social and behavioral changes at the village level to increase consumption of nutritious food. Its interventions are making positive impacts on individuals and growing demand for nutritious food across districts.
Diversification of production systems is aimed at increasing the availability and accessibility of nutritious food. TARINA promotes the cultivation of vegetables, pulses, and oilseeds to diversify staple grain production.
