Femconsult is proud to present the book “Diversity and change in food wellbeing: Cases from Southeast Asia and Nepal”, by A. Niehof, H.N. Gartaula and M. Quetulio-Navarra (eds). It presents the results of a series of studies carried out in the last seven years in Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam and Nepal with the financial and technical support of the Neys-Van Hoogstraten Foundation. The book is an edited volume of the different chapters which contain important information on gender and food and nutrition for gender-and-development researchers and practitioners.
Since January 2015 the Neys-van Hoogstraten Foundation External Secretariat is managed by Femconsult. The main objective of the Neys-van Hoogstraten Foundation (NHF) is to strengthen and stimulate socio-economic research in the field of household budgets, family nutrition, and food and nutrition security in Indonesia and other (Southeast) Asian countries. NHF recognizes that food and nutrition problems are not gender-neutral. The foundation aims to increase awareness of gender inequalities and the different gender roles in the food and nutrition chain. By providing financial support for research in these fields, the foundation aims at enhancing the quality and quantity of research on the topics listed above.
