Food & Nutrition Security Portal
Food and Nutrition security exists when all people, at all times, have physical, social and economic access to food, which is safe and consumed in sufficient quantity and quality to meet their dietary needs and food preferences, and is supported by an environment of adequate sanitation, health services and care, allowing for a healthy and active life (CFS). Food and nutrition security is defined by four dimensions: right to adequate food, availability, accessibility, and utilization.

- Webinar #22: Water-Smart Agriculture in East Africa. Farmers, and particularly smallholders, have a huge role to play in Africa's economic development. Their capacity to increase yields, derive higher incomes and support more sustainable future farming will be central to successful (and more inclusive) economic growth strategies. This webinar is about one key factor at the centre of farming development — the establishment of Water-Smart Agriculture (WaSA). Nested within the broader contexts of Climate-Smart Agriculture and Sustainable Intensification, WaSA is an approach to developing and using water in smallholder farming that seeks to systematise thinking on investments, enabling farmers and those working with them to make sound strategic choices within rapidly evolving social, economic and physical systems and amidst major climate uncertainty.
