Report on The Gender-Transformative Framework for Nutrition (GTFN) is a conceptual model supported by research and practice that enables improved gender analysis, solutions design, and monitoring and evaluation of nutrition approaches, as well as interventions promoting women and girls’ empowerment. The GTFN applies systems thinking that enables users to critically examine the multi-sectoral drivers of malnutrition using a gender equality and empowerment lens. By exploring the complexity of factors across systems that interact and foster or limit empowerment, it helps to identify areas for action that not only improve nutrition outcomes but also transform gender relations, empower women and girls, and create more equitable systems. A gender-transformative approach requires an understanding of how power dynamics limit or enhance the participation of women and girls and their ability to claim their rights. Gender transformative actions “actively” seek to build equitable social norms, structures, and policies, in addition to individual gender-equitable behavior, while also transforming harmful root causes of inequality.
