During a plenary session at the TOPS/FSN Network Knowledge Sharing Meeting in July 2014, Susan Bradley of Food for Peace (FFP) asked the food security implementers in the room for their thoughts on key questions regarding the updating of the FFP Strategic Plan. This is the first question in that series.
We welcome your thoughts and will be sharing your ideas directly with FFP. You can view the small group report out from the plenary session for this question by skipping to minute 34:35 for this recording.
FFP non-emergency programs traditionally target communities experiencing deep, chronic poverty and persistent food insecurity; however, as partners increasingly turn to market-oriented approaches to reducing vulnerability, they are finding that forging links across/between vulnerable and viable households, livelihoods and even geographic regions may hold the key to sustainability.
Does this have implications for how we target programs in the future?
