Conflict-sensitive Food and Nutrition Security Programming in Fragile Settings: Workshop Report

Connecting Business initiative Secretariat • 17 July 2019

On 1 February 2018 The Broker, together with the Food & Business Knowledge Platform organised a workshop on conflict sensitivity in food and nutrition security (FNS) programming. This workshop, marking the end of The Broker’s project on ‘doing good’ in fragile settings, was attended by a variety of practitioners, researchers as well as policymakers working on topics of food security in fragile settings. The workshop included three presentations followed by a thought provoking discussion, highlighting the need to operationalize the concept of ‘stability’, to better facilitate adaptive programme management – supported by monitoring & evaluation, and to gather lessons from practice on how FNS programming in fragile settings can be best utilized to move from humanitarian aid towards resilience and development, and when it can (and cannot) link up to private sector development in such precarious environments.
