Registration is now open for the ANH Academy Webinar Series: Food systems approaches to food and nutrition security in humanitarian crises 

ANH Academy Webinar Series: Food systems approaches to food and nutrition security in humanitarian crises | ANH Academy (anh-academy.org)


In this series, there are three webinars:  

  • Frameworks for food system approaches to food and nutrition security in settings impacted by protracted crises (18 January 2022, 13:00 – 14:30 GMT
  • Existing evidence base and gaps (17 February 2022, 14:00 – 15:30 GMT
  • Data landscape and the future for data acquisition in armed-conflict contexts (28 February 2022, 14:00 – 15:30 GMT)   

Armed conflict continues to claim and threaten lives in many countries including Afghanistan, Yemen, Syria, Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan and Ethiopia. UNHCR estimates that there are 20.4 million refugees, and the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC) estimates an additional 45.7 million internally displaced persons due to armed conflict (end of 2019). 


While the initial need of forcibly displaced persons, in most situations, is quick access to water, food, sanitation and shelter, in protracted crises where people are displaced for long periods of time this need shifts to other forms of support that promote building livelihoods and becoming self-sufficient. 


Pathways to becoming self-sufficient include producing food for sustenance and/or to sell, engaging with the food market through employment (e.g. retailer, distributor) and diversifying income sources to improve resilience to shocks such as reduced food production and/or increased prices.
