Open Full Event Side Event Going Deeper With Data And Methods To Improve Understanding Of Food And Nutrition Security Linkages (Online)

Times are in CAT (GMT+2)


Seven years remain to achieve SDG2 and yet global statistics for hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition are trending in the wrong direction. Existing policy actions are proving insufficient in the face of pandemics, conflicts, climate extremes and economic shocks.  

The 2022 Global Nutrition Report calls for greater attention to both food and nutrition security commitments. To facilitate this, we need a better understanding of the linkages between food insecurity and all forms of malnutrition, which in turn requires investment in data and measurement, and innovative methods to identify drivers and bridge responses across acute humanitarian and protracted contexts.    

This side event will present participants with an evidence synthesis of related research and actively engage them in identifying types of data, data literacy & use core competencies, and ways of characterizing food and nutrition security across contexts, that can help inform better policy implementation and resource allocation.
