Following a request from practitioners, we have organized a series of webinars to orient practitioners on the use of the tools (Nutval and CotD) and their potential use for the calculation of CVA for Nutrition transfer value.

This first webinar took place on October 11th and it was an orientation on both tools and how to select them. In this second webinar we will present the CotD software and methodology, how it is used to calculate the cost and affordability of different diets, and how it can be used to model interventions at the individual, household, and market level to improve access to nutritious food. We will also review how to use CotD results to develop and refine the key messages for your social and behaviour change (SBC) interventions.

There will also be a time for Q&A. 

The webinar will be in English with simultaneous translation into French, Spanish, Arabic and possibly in one or two other languages (depending on the interest, so register and express your language interest quickly!)
