Abstract

This research aimed at developing methods and protocols for generating reliable human energy expenditure profiles that can be used in a variety of agricultural settings in developing countries. The research was carried out in Ghana, India, and Nepal and it developed a protocol in which respondents’ physical activity data (accelerometry data) can be integrated with time use and food intake data. The data and methodology developed through this research provide insights into (1) the energy expenditure and time allocation dimension of agricultural practices and innovations and (2) the gender-differentiated intra-household labour and time allocation associated with these practices and innovations. Such insights are critical for the design of nutritionally-sensitive agricultural interventions.
