Report of IFPRI’s conference on “Building Resilience for Food and Nutrition Security,” held in May 2014, Addis Abeba
Please find attached the independent impact assessment report of IFPRI’s 2020 Vision conference on “Building Resilience for Food and Nutrition Security,” held in May 2014 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. IFPRI commissioned the report in order to be able to assess the impact of the Conference on individual participants, professional discourse, and organizational participants. The conference generated a wide variety of short-term impacts, some larger than others, felt both at the level of individual conference participants and within the organizations that sent them to Addis, and last but not least within in the organizing institutions. Most of these impacts took the form of accelerated learning and increased coordination and partnering across organizations, at both the program and project level. Surveys and interviews confirmed that many of these impacts will be durable rather than just temporary. The reference to the ECHO/DEVCO Resilience Building Programme in Ethiopia ( RESET) is in page 25 of the report.
