The FAO Regional Office in Dakar, the Red Cross, the FAO Office in Burkina Faso, as well as the GRET, HKI, the Direcion of Nutrition and the Executif Secretariat for Food Security (SE-CNSA) are organising in Burkina Faso, in the Sahel region (Dori), a training workshop on Integrating nutrion and food security programmes in emergency situations and for resilience building. This workshop, which will take place from 17 to 19 February 2015 targets the actors of the Sahel region, of the neighbouring regions, and of the national level. It aims to contribute to reducing malnutrition and improving the resilience, thus participating in the AGIR initiative to which the Government of Burkina Faso is committed. This event will also be an opportunity to share success (and less successful) stories of integrated nutrition and food security programs in Burkina Faso (i.e. agriculture, money transfer, support to markets, etc.). We also invite all partners who wish to share experience(s) and lessons learned by compiling the experience(s) form, and return it to [email protected].

The workshop targets key players in the agriculture, nutrition/health, water and sanitation, social protection, monitoring and evaluation sectors and from different organizations (government, NGOs, UN, cluster members and focal points for AGIR and REACH, etc.).
