Event Description

TRAINING COURSE ON LINKING EMERGENCY AID TO FOOD AND NUTRITION SECURITY

See other courses: http://datastatresearch.org/top_courses.php

INTRODUCTION

There has been a substantial increase in the number and impact of natural disasters. Additionally, man-made crisis and disasters are increasing and many conflicts have remained unresolved. Emergency or food aid, although necessary, is often criticized as a donor driven response, creating dependency in the short term, and undermining initiatives for local agricultural development in the longer term. Usually, only a few incentives exist to encourage people to build a better life and prevent them from falling back into avoidable situations where they need assistance again.

This course introduces how to bridge the gap between emergency assistance and developmental food and livelihood security support. Building resilience of livelihoods is necessary to make the position of households robust. Responses to emergency situations have to be seen and used as an initial step towards sustainable development.

WHO SHOULD APPLY

The course is targeted at professionals from the field of food and nutrition security, responsible for emergency planning.

5 Days
