FSIN Objectives and Priorities

The overall objective of the first three years of the FSIN initiative is to enable developing countries to build sustainable food and nutrition information systems that will produce reliable and accurate data to guide analysis and decision-making. Its three specific objectives are:

  1. To establish a global Community of Practice acting as a platform to share knowledge, best practices and lessons learned among its members comprising national, regional and global institutions as well as individual food security professionals;

  2. To provide access to demand-driven, harmonized sets of standards, methods, tools and indicators for food and nutrition security information gathering, analysis and decision-making;

  3. To strengthen country and regional level capacities for food and nutrition security information collection, analysis and decision-making.
