Small Island Developing States (SIDS), but also other developing countries,
especially in the Global South, still face distinctive challenges to ensure
sustainable livelihoods for their current population as well as future
generations. One of these challenges relates to energy – the access to
affordable energy, the reliable supply of sustainable energy and the
efficient use of energy.
To reach learners from SIDS all over the world, an unique online learning
course has been developed to address this themes – 100% online! The L3EAP
online learning course “Sustainable Energy for SIDS” (9/1 – 26/2/2017)
seeks to inspire learners to ask the right questions and enable them to
assess the opportunities of renewable and sustainable energy-efficient energy
technologies offer for SIDS in particular.

innovation in the business of food. It will bring together many themes that
have already been handled by this event in the past, and set them out anew in
light of new global possibilities whose common core is the idea that everyone
on the planet should have access to food that is healthy, safe and
sufficient. Universal Expositions are six-month events taking place every
five years that develop a theme of global interest.

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.
