Resilience Measurement Technical Working Group

Food and Nutrition Security Resilience Measurement Technical Working Group

As recommended by an Expert Consultation held in February 2013 in Rome, a Resilience Measurement Technical Working Group (TWG) was established, under the FSIN. The primary objectives of the TWG are to secure consensus on a common analytical framework and guidelines for food and nutrition security resilience measurement, and to promote adoption of agreed principles and best practices. Their main expected tasks are to develop resilience-related diagnostic and M&E technical materials and support relevant regional and country-level initiatives as well as field practitioners. 

A first Technical Working Group consultative meeting took place in October 2013, with the goal to provide feedback on a draft technical paper on resilience measurement principles and to agree on further work. Find out more about this meeting.
