EpiNu Photovoice- DR Congo

In DR Congo, acute malnutrition rates jumped from 15.6 million in 2019 to 27 million in 2021. Climate impacts on local agriculture is one of the underlying drivers of this deteriorating nutrition security situation. DHDI is partnering with CEAFPD in South Kivu to develop digital community responses with women to mitigate this climate change reality. 

EpiNu Photovoice, currently ongoing in DR Congo, provides a hybrid platform for women to engage in digital storytelling related to food & nutrition insecurity.
