Online Global Forum on Food Security and Nutrition consultation
The Global Forum on Food Security and Nutrition (FSN) organizes an online consultation from 2 till 23 September about food security. Through the forum, FSN would like to explore factors that contribute to evidence and knowledge actually being used in policy making processes – in particular at the country and regional level.
Technical notes, research reports, policy briefs, etc. on food security and nutrition are often targeted at decision-makers and aim at contributing to evidence-based policy making. However the degree to which the FSN information produced is actually used by decision makers, and influences policy making, remains unclear.
Through the online consultation, FSN would like to gather concrete examples of how the FSN information produced by organizations has been used by policy makers and influenced policy dialogue and decisions in the organization’s country or region.
More than anything FSN would like to hear success stories about what actually worked in terms of information being used by policy makers!
