Helen Young participates in Action Against Hunger’s International Scientific Committee meeting

Helen Young participated in Action Against Hunger’s (ACF) meeting of its International Scientific Committee (ISC) in Madrid, Spain from April 18-19, 2016. Other members of the ISC in attendance were André Briend, Hélène Delisle, Johan Pottier, and the ISC President Vincenzo Bollettino.

The meeting was an open dialogue among expert researchers and ACF technical directors and research coordinators designed to inform ACF’s research strategy. During the “ask the expert” section, ACF field teams had the opportunity to send questions to the assembled expert researchers. Topics included research methods, ways of working with stakeholders, and a variety of thematic areas such as resilience, undernutrition, markets, and cash transfers. The meeting generated fruitful discussion for the researchers and ACF.
