Food & Business Knowledge Platform – Highlights 2016

May 18, 2017 By: F&BKP Office

The Food & Business Knowledge Platform (F&BKP or the Platform) has published its highlights of 2016. This third year of the Platform was marked by several important achievements: interaction and dynamics within the Platform intensified; the requests for support to knowledge trajectories increased; more traffic was visible on the website; and approximately 60 research consortia are now up and running.

Ensuring Food and Nutrition Security (FNS) for the increasing global population poses an enormous challenge to governments, NGOs, researchers, and the private sector. The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs launched the F&BKP  in 2013 to improve the Dutch contribution in this challenge. The Platform has contributed to long-term and systematic changes for FNS by facilitating the exchange of available knowledge, the co-creation of knowledge and as such by enhancing the use of knowledge.  This has been done by connecting research, policy and practice.

Please download the flyer which highlights the F&BKP results in 2016 according to the three main activities of the Platform: Partnering with others, Research, and Knowledge Portal.
