This section lists and describes the key actors concerned with producing information for food and nutrition security in emergency and development contexts. It gives an overview of the selected global and regional networks, initiatives and organizations that are relevant to FSIN.
The networks and initiatives are divided into two main categories:
- Selected Networks and Initiatives producing information for Food Security and Nutrition
- Knowledge and Advocacy Networks Sharing Information on Food Security and Nutrition
The networks and initiatives might not fall only into one category; therefore they are placed under the most relevant one.
