Addressing Acute Malnutrition: Technical Series on the Conceptual Framework for Addressing Acute Malnutrition in Africa’s Drylands

In October and November 2020, the Feinstein International Center is co-hosting a technical series with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO) to review the basic drivers of malnutrition in Africa’s drylands. The series is based on the Feinstein International Center Mind the Gap research, which demonstrates the significance between climate, environment, and conflict with persistent global acute malnutrition in three countries: Sudan, South Sudan, and Chad. The series is reviewing each of the basic drivers proposed by Helen Young here.

There are three more panels left for this technical series. Click here to register and learn more. 

The first panel was held on October 22, 2020 and discussed the seasonal and inter annual variability in climate, environment and ecology of drylands and implications for the underlying drivers of acute malnutrition. Click here to watch the recording.
