The International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and its 2020 Vision
Initiative, along with partners, are organizing an international conference
[1] on Building Resilience for Food and Nutrition Security [2] to be held
on 15-17 May 2014, in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The global conference is the
centerpiece of a two-year global consultative process [3]. The ultimate
objective of this consultation process is to inform, influence, and catalyze
action by key actors—policymakers, nongovernmental organizations, the
private sector, educators, and researchers—to incorporate resilience into
the post-2015 agenda and improve policies, investments, and institutions to
strengthen resilience so that food and nutrition security can be achieved for
all. During the conference, specialists from the resilience and vulnerability
communities as well as leading experts and practitioners from food and
nutrition security, agriculture, humanitarian, and related development
sectors will come together to assess emerging shocks that threaten food and
nutrition security, identify approaches and tools for building resilience,
set priorities for action by different actors and in different regions, and
identify knowledge and action gaps.
