    180th BIFAD Public Meeting: Agriculture and Food Security in Fragile and Conflict-affected Contexts

    The 180th Board for International Food and Agricultural Development (BIFAD) public meeting will seek to understand the unique challenges of improving the agricultural sector and food security in conflict-affected and fragile contexts in order to strengthen investments in evidence-based, tailored food and agriculture programming. This BIFAD public meeting begins to address this need by bringing stakeholders together for a timely discussion on the subject.  The event will specifically address the following questions: What is the state of knowledge on the relationship between conflict, fragility and food systems? What are the implications of this relationship for food security? How can food security and agricultural investments be most effective in preventing conflict or accelerating recovery in post-conflict settings?
