A global conference on ‘Building Resilience for Food and Nutrition Security’ will try to find solutions for ending hunger and poverty globally.

Organised by the International Food Policy Research Institute, over 800 experts and practitioners from around the world from food, nutrition, health, agriculture, humanitarian and related development sectors will assemble in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, to discuss ways to improve policies, investments and institutions to strengthen resilience in achieving food and nutrition security.

“The concept of resilience is currently the subject of wide attention in the development community, but in the context of food and nutrition security, it is less widely discussed,” said IFPRI Director-General Shenggen Fan.

The conference will be inaugurated by Prime Minister of Ethiopia and the chairperson of African Union Commission on May 15.
