THE OFFICE OF FOOD FOR PEACE FOOD ASSISTANCE AND FOOD SECURITY PROGRAMMATIC LEARNING AGENDA
The product of a robust consultative process, USAID’s Office of Food for Peace (FFP) has developed a food assistance and food security programmatic learning agenda. It seeks to identify and reach consensus around critical programmatic knowledge gaps and potentially high impact research and learning opportunities that could be used to improve the quality of design and implementation of emergency and non-emergency food security programming. The document outlines six key themes including, Working with Crisis-Affected Populations; Resilience; Sustained Results; Strategic Integration; Modality Choice and Effectiveness; Access and Inclusion, with key lines of inquiry under each theme. The learning agenda is intended to be a dynamic living document that can be used by implementing partners, academic researchers, and by the broader food security and nutrition community to identify their own priority topics among the themes and lines of inquiry, and, within those, develop relevant research/learning questions and approaches based on their programming context.
