Event Details

What do the concepts sustainability, integrated programming, and adaptive management really mean for food security and nutrition practitioners on the ground and how do they link with one another? Join us on World Food Day for an interactive panel with three Chiefs of Party who are leading USAID/Office of Food for Peace (FFP)-funded Development Food Security Activities (DFSAs) in three distinct contexts: Ethiopia, Bangladesh, and Zimbabwe.

The event will start at 8:30 am with a light breakfast, followed by an interactive panel discussion, where the three DFSAs will share lessons learned around integrated design and implementation (i.e. layering and sequencing of program interventions and stakeholder coordination), sustainability, and adaptive management. There will be ample time for questions as well as an opportunity to learn how you, as a food security implementing partner, can engage with the IDEAL community moving forward.
