SecureNutrition aims to bridge knowledge gaps between Agriculture, Food Security, and Nutrition. It will offer a space to exchange experiences, to disseminate information, and ultimately to increase coordination, collaboration, and co-generation of knowledge.
The SecureNutrition Knowledge Platform represents discussions with: the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), the associated CGIAR Research Program on Agriculture for Improved Nutrition and Health (CRP4), Harvest Plus, the University of Pretoria (South Africa) Institute for Food, Nutrition, and Well-Being, Save the Children, Concern Worldwide, the Institute of Development Studies (IDS), the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the World Food Programme (WFP), the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and the World Bank. The SecureNutrition Knowledge Platform team is eager to continue expanding this core group and is currently in the process of identifying more partners and establishing links with institutions interested in understanding and contributing knowledge on the linkages between agriculture, food security, and nutrition.
Over the next few months, the SecureNutrition team will continue to actively engage with existing and potential partners on the design and functionality of this new community of practice (both online and in person). An interactive website will be launched in April 2012.
