TOPS/FSN Network East & Southern Africa Regional Knowledge Sharing Meeting: Changing Landscapes of Food Security

The Knowledge Sharing Meeting brought together over 200 implementers, donors, and researchers from over 95 organizations for peer learning, knowledge sharing, and networking around food security and nutrition program implementation in Africa.

The meeting fostered a collaborative exchange of ideas among participants. Attendees explored the changing landscapes of food security in the region including the growing role of youth, and the need to build sustainability and resilience strategies into projects. They worked together to address these emerging themes as opportunities rather than challenges to strengthen programming with the goal of improving the food security and nutrition status of vulnerable populations in the region and around the world.
