C4N-NIPN at the 51st Committee on World Food Security
C4N-NIPN is pleased to share insights from the side-event co-hosted with EC-NIS and the 50x2030 initiative. The event, entitled ‘What it takes: from effective data generation to use to drive better policies and programmes in food security and nutrition’, took place at the 51st Committee on World Food Security.
Key takeaways from the event underscore the continuous nature of efforts to strengthen data capabilities. Additionally, prioritising data quality, adapting to different contexts, and collaborating with a broad range of sectoral departments is essential. Investing in sharing knowledge between countries and data initiatives is key. Furthermore, multisectoral platforms offer significant opportunities. Challenges include data rigor, effective communication with policymakers, using data for early crisis detection, and integrating data investment into national budgets. Ultimately, ‘what gets measured gets done’ highlights the pivotal role of data in driving action and progress.
