Last November, the first ACF Research For Nutrition Conference (#R4NUT) was held in Paris.
This conference was an important moment for ACF for several reasons:
1- It was the first edition of a meeting we want to make yearly and whose objective is to become an unmissable event to be informed about the last scientific research on undernutrition.
2- It was the occasion to create a never-seen-before space of discussion between donors, academics and humanitarians to improve communication and synergies.
3- It was the opportunity to highlight ACF research (REFANI-ACF US, C PROJECT-ACF SP, No wasted Lives-ACF UK and OUADINUT and MAM’OUT-ACF FR) as well as other key researches from renowned universities and institutes (Harvard, Tufts, IFPRI, Gent University…)
4- and ultimately, it was an opportunity to promote the scientific legitimacy and quality of ACF’s expertise and reinforce its position as the leading INGO on the fight against Hunger.
- You can either circulate the articles you are interested in (on the link cash/nut, WASH/NUT, CMAM, on the operational challenges or uptake challenges….) Check the papers from pages 56 to 68.
- Or you can send the entire section to promote the scientific legitimacy and quality of ACF’s expertise. In a time where donors want more and more ‘evidence based’ expertise, it is important to position and reaffirm as much as possible that ACF is a NGO conducting scientific research to fight undernutrition and provide programmatic solutions that feeds from its results.
