FSN Network Knowledge Sharing Meeting in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso

FSN Network Knowledge Sharing Meeting in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso

The fifth TOPS Food Security and Nutrition (FSN) Network Regional Knowledge Sharing Meeting will bring together implementers, donors, and researchers for peer learning, knowledge sharing, and networking around food security and nutrition program implementation in Francophone countries.

The meeting seeks to strengthen collaboration between food security and nutrition implementing partners across sectors, organizations, and funding sources, while providing a platform for discussion of new evidence and recommendations relevant to food security and nutrition programming and opportunities for exchange of ideas and problem solving around issues of common concern.

Potential topics include resilience in action, conflict management and mitigation, linking humanitarian and development efforts, measuring resilience, climate change adaptation, social and behavior change, operationalizing gender integration, fraud prevention and accountability in commodity management, agriculture, and nutrition program delivery.

If you know of potential presenters who may have interesting solutions or new ways of approaching food security or have important lessons to share from your own project, please send any suggestions to Lynette Friedman, TOPS consultant, at friedmanlynette@gmail.com.
