Linking Emergency Aid To Food And Nutrition Security
insecurity and disasters are directly related; therefore, institutions dealing
with food and nutrition security should be prepared for such adversities and
device means to respond. Relief aid institutions also play part in
maintenance of food and nutrition security in emergencies by providing relief
aid. Food aid is all about providing food and related assistance to tackle
hunger, either in emergency situations, or to help with deeper, longer-term
hunger alleviation and achieve food security. Thus, this training programme is
designed to enable participants to gain skills on how to prepare, measure, and
respond to nutrition emergencies to sustain food security.

- Understand classification of emergencies in particular
famine and food crises. Food insecurity and malnutrition and how these
have shaped operational response and practice.
- Explore food and nutrition security context with the
use of frameworks.

monitor the food and nutrition security situations.
- Study concepts of vulnerability, power, and gender in
relation to emergencies and food and nutrition security.
