Fish4Zambia team members Kathleen Ragsdale, Pamela Marinda, Mary Read-Wahidi, Lauren Pincus, Elin Torell, and Robert Kolbila presented a poster at the 2021 Women and Gender in International Development Conference held virtually from February 23-26, 2021.
Robert Kolbila, a graduate research assistant working with the project, was the presenting author of the poster entitled Using the Household Hunger Scale to explore food insecurity among smallscale fishers, processors, and traders at Lake Bangweulu: Fish4Zambia Results. Kolbila also earned a scholarship to attend the conference.
The theme of the conference was Out of the Theory and Into the Field. It provided an opportunity for students, early career faculty, practitioners, and extension professionals to learn from gender and international agriculture experts to promote inclusive agriculture and rural development.
