Infopoint Lunchtime Conference: The impact of El Niño on the livelihoods of vulnerable communities

This Infopoint conference will focus on the impacts of the El Niño weather event that is intensifying the risks to lives and livelihoods of the most vulnerable children, families and communities in countries that regularly experience large scale food and nutrition crises and are regular recipients of food assistance.  We will also look at long term impacts of El Niño on the affected communities’ resilience and food security.
