184th Public Meeting of the Board for International Food and Agricultural Development (BIFAD)
The Board for International Food and Agricultural Development (BIFAD) will host a public meeting:

The Global Food Security Crisis: Exploring the Evidence Base and Lessons from the Past to Strengthen Agricultural, Nutrition, and Food Systems in the Face of Shocks

on May 23, 2022, from 12:00 to 2:30 EDT online, with designated times for public comment from 1:30–1:50 pm EDT and from 2:15–2:20 pm EDT.

The global effort to end hunger and poverty is at a critical moment, with Russia’s invasion of Ukraine adding to an already-compounded global food crisis as countries struggle to recover from the impacts of COVID-19, humanitarian emergencies, and climate change. Food systems, nutrition, and humanitarian assistance experts will take stock of evidence and lessons learned from previous shocks and what it means to get ahead of future crises by building resilient food systems. Evidence-based recommendations from these deliberations will inform USAID strategy implementation, policy, and programming. The meeting will include an introduction to newly appointed BIFAD members, a briefing on BIFAD’s current work plan priorities, and an overview of key upcoming initiatives. BIFAD will announce new work relating to systemic solutions for climate change adaptation and mitigation in agriculture, nutrition, and food systems to inform the implementation of USAID’s recently released climate change strategy. Public comment is invited to further inform BIFAD’s work.
