FAO and WFP are in the process of each developing a Corporate Strategy on Information Systems for Food and Nutrition Security and will also work together on a Joint Strategy. These activities are based on the recommendations of the “Joint Thematic Evaluation of FAO and WFP Support to Information Systems for Food Security (ISFS)” and FAO and WFP management responses.
The Strategies should respond to concerns raised in the evaluation related to the ability of FAO and WFP to sustain their leadership and build on the recognized positions and roles of each Organization. This includes providing global food security information products and services and support to strengthen countries’ own capacity in this area. Your thoughts and experience are critical in helping shape the direction for the strategies ensuring they are driven by needs and requests of stakeholders.
The online discussion forum has been set-up for the purpose of assisting FAO and WFP to assess changing needs and gaps in food security information products and services. Accordingly, we would be very grateful if you could take a few minutes to provide feedback on the thematic areas outlined below.
Many thanks in advance for your time and assistance.
