Hi Mat,
Our team member Elizabeth Kimani-Murage works on nutrition and diets. It is not featured strongly in our proposal but it is certainly an important part of our vision. We're working with a limited space and the proposal is already quite complex, so I'm leaving it out at this stage. Perhaps we have an opportunity to improve it. I see that you are putting in a lot of work and accumulated a lot of points. Good luck!

Dear Gigi,
It is remarkable how similar the problems in the Lusaka food system are to ours in Nairobi. I love this quote from your minister of agriculture saying that she "did not want to be the ‘Minister of Maize’." So much of eastern and southern Africa is stuck in a maze of maize. Our visions are very similar with a focus on traditional food crops and working with government on a food system strategy. I spent a bit more time looking at restoring agricultural land and potential business models. This is because we live in an economic system where capitalism is hegemonic and I don't think that we can avoid it, so better find a way to benefit from it. If you have time, please check out and let me know what you think.
Wishing you all the best in Lusaka. Keep up the good work!

Hi Paul,
You have a very strong proposal with several synergies with the (my) Desakota Food Commons proposal. Let's meet soon and discuss how we can work together in Makueni. It's a special place for me and am happy to see another proposal focusing specifically on it.
