To share lessons from significant progress in Thailand’s work to eliminate hunger and undernutrition in its country, the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI
) and Mahidol University
recently conducted the South-South Learning Workshop to Accelerate Progress to End Hunger and Nutrition for a range of stakeholders from Africa and Asia, in Bangkok, Thailand.
The event was developed in partnership with Compact2025
, the Food Security Portal project, and with support of Nourishing Millions and the Asia Roundtable on Food Innovation for Improved Nutrition (ARoFIIN
). It demonstrated to a group of officials from Senegal, Nigeria, Tanzania, Zambia, Mozambique and South Africa, as well as from Compact2025 focal countries Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Malawi and Rwanda, the various initiatives Thailand has taken in the past years to tackle challenges related to food security and nutrition.
In addition to government, the workshop brought together stakeholders from the private sector, academia and civil society, to participate in discussions focused on mobilising communities and fostering collaborations across multiple sectors to engage in large-scale progress in improving nutrition.
