Workshop Report: Training on Food Security Concepts and Frameworks in Tajikistan
A ten day training/workshop on food security concepts and frameworks was jointly organized by the Ministry of Agriculture of the Republic of Tajikistan and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) within the framework of the European Union (EU) funded project “Support to Strengthening of the National Food Security Information System in Tajikistan.”
The training aimed at:
- improving understanding of food security concepts, frameworks, and methods of analysis;
- familiarising participants with research methods and policy analysis;
- improving food security information reporting skills among the technical working group members; and
- advancing the debate on food security related policy issues that contribute effectively to the reduction of food insecurity and poverty.
The training has stimulated the dialogue among staff from national institutions who are responsible for, or involved in the formulation and implementation of food security related policies and programmes.
