Facilitated by IDEAL, the Food Security COVID-19 Learning Event will create an opportunity for emergency and non-emergency practitioners of USAID/Bureau of Humanitarian Assistance-funded activities to:

  • Pause and reflect on the lessons learned so far from implementing emergency and non-emergency food security activities during the COVID-19 pandemic

  • Explore innovations and adaptations resulting from the response to a changing environment

  • Discuss the implications and applicability of lessons learned and adaptations across pandemic contexts to situations beyond COVID-19; and 

  • Network with colleagues to establish and strengthen relationships for peer-to-peer collaboration and learning.
