Meeting Description:

At our Knowledge Sharing Meetings, the connections you make are as substantial as the knowledge you gain. Every session you attend, from energizing plenaries to intimate lunch tables, encourages active participation and engagement with your peers.

Take advantage of frequent exchanges with colleagues from around the world and across the food security and nutrition spectrum as you learn firsthand what works and what doesn’t, and share your own experiences and challenges.

With each conversation, both in and out of sessions, you are building momentum toward our common goal of ending hunger and malnutrition for all.
