About the Event

Since the onset of COVID-19, the food security M&E sector has focused on overcoming data collection challenges posed by COVID-19 and strategies for combating these roadblocks. Now, several months into COVID-19 adaptations, it’s time to move beyond a focus on data collection and provide a forum for food security practitioners to share findings and how these findings have been used to adapt programmatic decision-making.

Join IDEAL for an exciting opportunity to share and learn with peer food security practitioners from East and Southern Africa about experiences applying data for decision-making during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This digital poster showcase is a series of five interactive, regional events with food security staff in East and Southern Africa, West Africa, Middle East and North Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, and Asia. During each regional event, participants will have a chance to do a virtual ‘gallery walk’ to view the submitted posters and hear presentations of a number of selected posters. 

Digital Poster Submissions

Food security staff from East and Southern Africa are invited to submit digital posters for this showcase highlighting 1) key COVID-19-related findings, and 2) how the findings have or will be used to inform activity implementation. Digital posters for this regional showcase must be submitted by September 21, 2020. For more information on submission requirements, please click here. This event is part of the IDEAL Food Security COVID-19 Learning Series.
