The IFPRI 2020 Conference, held May 15-17, 2014 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, will bring together policymakers, practitioners, and scholars to discuss how resilience can be strengthened for food and nutrition security. The conference will:

  • Articulate an intellectual framework for resilience;
  • Identify key emerging shocks that pose the biggest threats to food and nutrition security, where resilience needs to be significantly strengthened;
  • Assess experiences through case studies and draw out lessons from programs, policies, institutions, and investments around the world;
  • Identify key approaches and tools to build resilience to shocks;
  • Set priorities for action by different actors and in different regions; and
  • Identify knowledge and action gaps in research, policy, and programming that need to be met or scaled up in order to successfully build resilience to food and nutrition insecurity.
  • Conferees will represent food and nutrition security, agriculture, humanitarian, and related development sectors as well as actors from government, the private sector, nongovernmental organizations, donors, and academia.

  • The three-day conference will feature an exciting program of keynote speakers, chaired plenary and parallel sessions, side events, and an interactive Knowledge Fair showcasing the latest on-the-ground initiatives on resilience for food and nutrition security.
