There have been reports of sexual misconduct within the international development sector.
CPAR believes no-one should ever be exploited or abused. That includes sexual or gender based abuse, harassment, exploitation and violence. This is reflected in our organizational policies around Harassment and Discrimination, Gender and Anti-Corruption.
FOOD SECURITY AND NUTRITION
Nutrition challenges are not only about a lack of food. Malnutrition often arises when there is a gap in knowledge about positive nutrition behaviours – including what to eat, the importance of a balanced diet, and how to prepare foods to retain nutrients. Where CPAR works, diets are typically heavily starch based, limited to one or two food groups and locally available nutritious foods have been overlooked. This is why CPAR integrates nutrition and health education into all of our programming.
