There has been a substantial increase in the number and impact of natural disasters. Additionally, man-made crisis and disasters are increasing, and many conflicts have remained unresolved. Emergency or food aid, although necessary, is often criticized as a donor driven response, creating dependency in the short term, and undermining initiatives for local agricultural development in the longer term. Usually, only a few incentives exist to encourage people to build a better life and prevent them from falling back into avoidable situations where they need assistance again.

This course introduces how to bridge the gap between emergency assistance and developmental food and livelihood security support. Building resilience of livelihoods is necessary to make the position of households robust. Responses to emergency situations have to be seen and used as an initial step towards sustainable development.

Who Should Apply?

The course is targeted at professionals from the field of food and nutrition security, responsible for emergency planning.

Course Objectives

After completion of this course the student will be able to:

  • have insight in the typology of emergencies – and the responses that contribute to food security;
  • have clear ideas for lobby and advocacy for policies to facilitate a more developmental approach to emergencies;
  • Apply tools for developing programs or interventions to contribute to structural development.

Course Content

  • Food and nutrition
  • Population Structure, Composition and Distribution
  • Social and Economic influences on food and nutrition security
  • Population Policies and Programs

Requirements

Participants should be reasonably proficient in English.

Methodology

  • Highly skilled experts will facilitate the course to ensure participants learn to make use of theoretical and conceptual thinking on food and nutrition security. The training approach is interactive, experience- as well as evidence-based. We will work with practical examples of policies and programmes of the critical path of transition from aid to food and nutrition security.
