This webinar took place January 30, 2020.
Improving food security is an urgent issue but the resources to do this are limited. You need to do the most you can with what you have, but how do you determine where to start? The Food Security Solutions (FSS) Prioritization Process, a unique decision-making approach, can help. The FSS Prioritization Process is a systematic, transparent process that was developed using evidence (in economics and ethics), refined by subject matter experts (in nutrition and public health) and tested by communities (in the U.S. and globally). It identifies which food security solutions resources should be allocated to and, along the way, builds consensus, engagement and community support and positions the community for action.
