FSN Forum activities in Africa

The Forum on Food Security and Nutrition in Africa (FSN Forum in Africa) is an online platform for multi-stakeholder dialogue where policy decisions on food security and nutrition are collectively inspired, developed and linked with practice.

The FSN Forum’s areas of expertise are:

Discussions and consultations

Discussions and consultations, moderated by the FSN Forum with internal or external thematic facilitators, explore food security and nutrition topics from a practitioner’s point of view, provide input to policy processes and can be used to validate technical work. They can be raised by fellow members, be initiated by the FSN Forum team or can be part of global and regional initiatives. 

Online surveys

The FSN Forum’s online surveys can be used to collect specific feedback for projects, programmes and policy processes ranging from quick polls to detailed questionnaires. The surveys, which can be run in one or more UN languages reach out to the FSN Forum’s members and can also be directed at specific audience. Throughout the process, all personal information and data are treated with the utmost confidentiality.

Workshops

Workshops are precious opportunities for FSN Forum members to engage in face-to face dialogue.  Bringing together focus groups from either geographical or thematic areas facilitates knowledge exchange, strengthens community building and allows designing actionable roadmaps for improving food security and nutrition policies.
