(BE)

To define the state of the art for quantitative measurement of food and nutrition security (F&NS) the Joint Research Centre (JRC) and the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) organise an international conference.

Researchers, academics, professionals and decision makers are invited to this interdisciplinary forum to discuss and present quantitative methods for integrated F&NS measurement.

Participants will find the opportunity for to forge partnerships for the development and promotion of improved methodologies to support evidence-based F&NS policies and decision makers.

Objectives

  • Highlight new quantitative methodologies and approaches that contribute to F&NS measurements and identify the main practical challenges
  • Share innovative methods or modelling techniques in F&NS measurement
  • Explore best practices to scale up multi- and cross-sectorial F&NS collaboration and coordination at country, regional and global level.
