Food Security Information Network - Landscape of Key Actors

Producing and Sharing Information for Food and Nutrition Security

The aim of the Food Security Information Network (FSIN) is to be a platform for knowledge sharing in all aspects relating to the generation and communication of food security and nutrition information. FSIN also acts as an advocate and facilitator for timely and evidence-based decision-making in food security and nutrition.

The paper FSIN Landscape of Key Actors describes the key actors concerned with producing information for food and nutrition security, both in emergency and in development contexts, with whom the FSIN intends to collaborate in building a global community of practice. It provides an overview of global and regional networks, initiatives and organizations that were selected based on their relevance to food security and nutrition information and knowledge exchange. Apart from exploring potential linkages and synergies with the FSIN, it is expected that in identifying key actors in this landscape analysis, the added value of FSIN will become apparent.

More about the FSIN Community of Practice:

In October 2012, FAO, IFPRI and WFP officially launched the Food Security Information Network (FSIN) to enable developing countries to build sustainable food and nutrition information systems.  FSIN has established a global community of practice (CoP) linking a broad range of partners to facilitate the exchange of experiences and field practices in food security and nutrition information and analysis among national, regional and other global or thematic networks.

> www.fsincop.net is the platform supporting the FSIN initiative and the FSIN CoP, which includes representatives of national, regional or global institutions, NGOs or individual food security professionals.
