6 May 2020. Panel discussion on “Measuring Food Insecurity in the Era of COVID-19: Practical insights from data collection activities in four global contexts” 

This Webinar was co-sponsored by the Data for Nutrition (DfN) and Agriculture-Nutrition (Ag2Nut) Communities of Practice. The need for data and monitoring emerged as a theme from the April 2nd Ag2Nut webinar on “COVID-19, Food Systems & Nutrition.” As food security is a key piece of agriculture-to-nutrition pathways, practitioners around the world shared their experiences through this measurement-focused discussion.
