Virtual regional dialogues

Since February 2021, I4N has been organizing and facilitating a series of virtual regional dialogues where experts, decision-makers, civil society and community representatives from the region, discuss and exchange experiences on key emerging issues associated with food security and nutrition. This also with a view to identify and exchange best practices and lessons learned in terms of both new challenges as well as adaptations required and innovative solutions for the achievement of SDG 2. The dialogues focused on food security and nutrition in relation to the migration crisis, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the conflict in Ukraine and the reality of food systems in LAC. Next in line are focused discussions on territories and the impact of climate change on food security.
