Podcast: Poop From The Coop: Livestock Contamination And Nutrition In Burkina Faso
Research Talks Podcast: Poop from the Coop: Livestock Contamination and Nutrition in Burkina Faso
What happens when chickens are allowed to roam indoors?
This episode features IFPRI Senior Research Fellow Derek Headey who, in a conversation with Sivan Yosef, tells the story of how IFPRI researchers decided to probe the link between the presence of livestock feces in the home and childhood stunting. The research took them from Ethiopia to Burkina Faso, where they designed an intervention to test whether simple poultry value chain improvements as well as water, sanitation, and hygiene education could reduce contaminants and improve young children’s nutritional status.
