Dear participants,

Discussions on our second topic What are the information gaps and related capacity gaps? starts off with two contributions coming from Cambodia and USA. Thank you for these highly relevant interventions!

We hope to receive many more contributions, so don’t hesitate to post your comments by logging in and using the form below. Alternatively, you can also just send back your reaction to, and we will post it on your behalf. Participants working for governments, regional organizations and other country and regional level organizations are particularly encouraged to react. FSIN is being set up primarily for you, so we want to make sure it is tailored to your needs and expectations.

For the second topic of this online stakeholder consultation, we would like you to respond in particular to the following questions:

•    As a user and/or producer of food security information, what do you think are the main data/information gaps and why? What capacities have to be developed to address those gaps? Please clearly separate between what is needed at country level and what is needed at regional level.

•    How do you think FSIN can best respond to these needs? What resources are needed to fill the gaps?

However, reactions on our first topic are also still very welcome!

Looking forward to your comments!

Thijs Wissink, Facilitator
