KORE - Knowledge sharing platform on Emergencies and Resilience

Combining food and nutrition education with livelihoods support for resilience - Experiences from Kenya


This webinar series is made possible by the support provided by the European Union, under the Partnership Programme contributing to the Global Network Against Food Crises. The contents of this webinar series are the sole responsibility of the speakers and do not necessarily reflect the views of the European Union. 


At the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the Food and Nutrition Division, has joined forces with KOREfrom the Office of Emergencies and Resilience, to document and share knowledge on country experiences in nutrition and resilience. 

Food and Nutrition education combined with livelihood support is practiced in several documented experiences (e.g. Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Burkina Faso). Given the potential for this practice to be used in a larger number of countries, this webinar builds on experiences from Kenya and on technical expertise to discuss basic steps to develop effective food and nutrition education programmes that are part of livelihood support programmes.  The discussions will be tailored to longer-term resilience programmes.  

This webinar is part of a new webinar series on food and nutrition education in emergency and resilience programmes.The webinar findings, together with a review of published literature and grey literature and consultations with experts, will be used to identify the essential components of food and nutrition education interventions and the planning steps required, that are appropriate and feasible for longer-term resilience programmes.  

Against this background, this webinar  specifically aims to discuss the appropriate steps to combine food and nutrition education with livelihood support in resilience programmes.
