BIFAD PUBLIC MEETING MINUTES -- DES MOINES, IOWA - OCTOBER 17, 2017

Building an Evidence Base for Resilience Programming under the USG Global Food Security Strategy:  Bridging the Gap Between Humanitarian and Development Assistance

A side event, Building an Evidence Base for Resilience Programming under the USG Global Food Security Strategy:  Bridging the Gap Between Humanitarian and Development Assistance, was convened on October 17, 2017 at the World Food Prize week in Des Moines, Iowa.  The meeting provided an overview of the impetus and rationale for elevating resilience in the U.S. Government’s Global Food Security Strategy, a progress update by USAID on resilience in the face of the current drought in the Horn of Africa, and an expert panel on the emerging evidence base on resilience. The panel discussed state-of-the-art approaches to resilience measurement, as well as what the evidence tells us about sources of resilience that enable households and communities to maintain their food security in the face of recurrent shocks such as drought and—more broadly—to sustainably escape and remain out of poverty in the face of complex risks.     

Here is the Interactive Agenda for the meeting.
