How can FNS programming ‘do good’ in fragile settings?

On 1 February The Broker, supported by the Food & Business Knowledge Platform (F&BKP), organized a workshop to conclude its project on conflict sensitive Food and Nutrition Security (FNS) programming in fragile settings. Bringing together policymakers, researchers and practitioners working on food security in fragile settings, this workshop served to share the lessons learned (captured in the final report), present the tool for conflict sensitivity that was developed based on the project’s main findings, and discuss ways forward for integrating conflict sensitivity and stability into FNS programming. You can download a full report of the workshop here.

Conflict Sensitivity in Food Security Programming. How to ‘do good’ in fragile settings?

The Broker, supported by the Food & Business Knowledge Platform (F&BKP), has recently started an explorative study on conflict sensitivity of Dutch Food and Nutrition Security (FNS) policies. Mali, Burundi and Ethiopia have been chosen as case countries. Recognizing the context specificity of FNS programmes and the uncertain and ambiguous relationship with conflict and stability, The Broker aims to identify what is already being done, formulate a checklist for “asking the right questions” and deepen the debate on conflict sensitive approaches in FNS programming.
