Global Evidence for Improving Resilience and Food Security: Findings from the REAPER Agriculture-Led Growth and Nutrition-Sensitive Agriculture Evidence Gap Maps

Online seminar

Currently, an estimated 765 million individuals suffer from food insecurity worldwide. Climate change, recurring shocks, stressors, and crises threaten to exacerbate chronic vulnerability, hunger, and water insecurity. Although there is a vast evidence base examining global alleviation efforts, there are few systematic, end user-focused tools to help make sense of the growing literature. Comprehensive knowledge management tools such as evidence gap maps are imperative for guiding evidence-informed programmatic investment and guiding global coordination to effectively save lives and strengthen resilience. 

Join us for a public discussion where implementation partners from the RFS for Programmatic Approaches (REAPER) project present findings from two of the largest comprehensive evidence reviews on agriculture-led growth and nutrition-sensitive agriculture to date. The 3ie team will present trends from over 3,000 studies and highlight policy and research implications for the agriculture and nutrition-sensitive food systems sectors.

The REAPER project was funded by USAID through the Comprehensive Initiative on Technology Evaluation (CITE) managed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) with additional support from Feed the Future Knowledge, Data, Learning and Training (KDLT) activity managed by Bixal Solutions Incorporated.
