USAID Advancing Nutrition piloted a suite of seven food environment assessments for use in low and middle-income countries. The assessments were identified to capture data on informal market food environment dimensions including accessibility, availability, price, product and vendor properties, affordability, marketing and regulation, and desirability. This session would focus on the assessment package and how the tools work together. Participants will have the opportunity to work with the assessments in groups, ask questions, and discuss amongst themselves how they might apply them in their own contexts. Facilitators will provide background on food environments followed by orientation to each of the assessments that will be workshopped during the learning lab. Through group work, participants will be assigned roles and take turns practicing as though they were data collectors. Group work will go through to analysis and presentation and end with a discussion of the potential utility of the data and use of findings.
