What is the FSIN?

A global Community of Practice linking national, regional and global institutions as well as individual food security professionals with the aim of addressing the food security information needs of developing countries and regions by strengthening national networks and institutions.
FSIN aims to accomplish this by serving as:

A catalyst for developing sustainable food and nutrition security (FNS) information systems able to guide policy analysis and decision-making in development and emergency contexts;

A platform for sharing standards, methods, tools, knowledge, news and capacity development opportunities on FNS information;

A facilitator between countries’ and regions’ capacity development needs and development partners, including the donor community; and

An advocate for timely communications and evidence-based analysis and decision-making on food security and nutrition.
