ACF Research For Nutrition Conference: Field Exchange Special

Categories: News / Comments OffPosted on: March 20, 2017

Dear all,

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.

Field Exchange, a reference magazine in the field of nutrition published a special 12-pages section (pp. 56-58) on the Conference in its last issue: FEX 54.

  • 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.
