Strengthening resilience for food security and nutrition in contexts facing recurrent shocks and stressors

01/10/2015

Strengthening the resilience of vulnerable households, communities and systems is central to achieving food security and improving nutrition in contexts affected by, or at risk of, recurrent climate-related and other shocks and stressors.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and the World Food Programme (WFP) – the Rome-based Agencies – are pleased to invite you to an open discussion on 12 October at 12,30, facilitated by Elisabeth Kvitashvili, United States Agency for International Development, with the participation of:

  • Diego Recalde, FAO Representative in Guatemala
  • Nadine Gbossa, IFAD Representative in Kenya
  • Benoit Thiry, WFP Country Director in Niger
  • Carlo Azzarri, Senior Research Staff, International Food Policy Research Institute

In line with the recent adoption of the joint, forward looking “Conceptual Framework for Collaboration and Partnership for Strengthening Resilience for Food Security and Nutrition”, the Rome-based Agencies are committed to working more and better together, and with key partners, to maximize their joint impact.

To demonstrate steps taken to operationalize this commitment, this side event will discuss recent progress in Rome-based Agencies’ collaboration to strengthen resilience for food security and nutrition. Joint country case studies in Guatemala, Kenya and the Niger will be presented, exploring the experience and future opportunities of Rome-based Agencies’ collaboration on building resilience.
