The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Food Programme (WFP) are organizing an Expert Consultation on Resilience Measurement Related to Food Security, to be held from the 19  to 21 February, 2013 in Rome.  

The purpose of the three-day consultation  is to discuss recent work and examine the strengths and weaknesses of different approaches to measuring resilience. Participants include policymakers, and staff from aid agencies, donors, NGOs, and regional organizations that play a key role in fostering food security and resilience.

The objectives of the consultation are to identify:

a) the types of data to collect, at what scale, and how often they should be collected; and

b) the most appropriate approaches to resilience analysis.

Proceedings and presentations from the consultation will be available. Key findings will be presented to a wider audience in a second consultation in order to seek consensus on the way forward.

The consultation is funded by USAID and the European Union as part of the Food Security Information Network (FSIN). The FSIN is an initiative of FAO, WFP and IFPRI.
