Learning partnerships for adaptive programming in fragile contexts

Organized by:Knowledge Platform Security & Rule of Law; Food and Business Knowledge Platform

We kindly invite you to a Food Security and Stability Community of Practice meeting, co-organised by F&BKP and KPSRL. The meeting focuses on learning partnerships for adaptive programming, more specifically to support food security and agricultural development programs in settings of fragility and protracted crisis. We will look at how learning for adaptation takes place with and between partners in consortia.

The meeting will feature the following three cases. When signing up for the meeting, please select the two of these cases which you would like to discuss more in-depth in the two rounds of breakout sessions that will be held.

PRIME - Pastoralist Areas Resilience Improvement through Market Expansion, Ethiopia - Presented by Mercy Corps

Operating in three regions in Ethiopia through ten consortium partners that collocate in eight offices under five technical areas, PRIME is structured to respond to complex and dynamic realities on the ground in its efforts to build resilience in pastoralist areas using a facilitative market systems approach. How can a large complex project be adaptive, flexible, inclusive and responsive?

BRCiS Consortium - Building Resilient Communities in Somalia - Presented by NRC

A humanitarian consortium (NRC, Concern Worldwide, Save the Children, IRC, Cesvi) that takes a holistic approach to supporting Somali communities in developing their capacity to resist and absorb minor shocks without undermining their ability to move out of poverty. The communities co-lead the design and the implementation. How did the consortium and the communities balance long-term goals and short-term emergency needs?

BBB - Building Bridges in Burundi - Presented by Help a Child

The program focuses on the creation of social and economic capital and assets among young people, aimed at reducing persistent poverty, unemployment and insecurity caused in part by increasing competition and tensions over arable land. The program has a component aiming to strengthen technical, professional and agrifood skills. How is this realized in communities exposed and vulnerable to inter-ethnic & political tensions, insecurity and violence, and to poverty and wider social & economic marginalization?


Please register and select your cases of choice through this form by Wednesday 27 May 12.00. Selecting a case beforehand is necessary for organizing the breakout groups online.

A more detailed program, including the Zoom link, will be sent to you shortly before the meeting. In case you have any questions, please email Jacqueline Vrancken Jacqueline at jacqueline@thebrokeronline.eu or Messina Laurette Manirakiza at M.Manirakiza@kpsrl.org
