What critical measures are required to both combat the COVID-19 crisis and to build sustainable food systems? Can responses to the COVID-19 crisis catalyse transformation toward sustainable food systems?

The COVID-19 pandemic poses unprecedented challenges for food systems worldwide - but also enormous opportunities. It is a wakeup call that has highlighted the need for holistic approaches to both address the shock brought by the pandemic, but also to address the vulnerabilities of our unsustainable food systems. To build sustainable food systems we will need more coordinated, more integrated measures – a food systems approach.

On 3rd June at 2:30 PM CEST join us for a discussion with key experts and policymakers who will provide insights on key measures to both combat the pandemic’s impact and to build sustainable food systems.

Learn about the ground-breaking En-ROADS climate solutions simulator and the accompanying online group learning experiences: the En-ROADS Climate Workshop and the Climate Action Simulation. Beyond this, this course will be your training to become an En-ROADS Climate Ambassador. These lessons will fine-tune your facilitation skills so that you can bring climate action and meaningful change to your workplace, classroom, community, and beyond as an En-ROADS Climate Ambassador. Throughout this course, we will run condensed versions of the workshop and game, create climate scenarios in En-ROADS together, dig deeply into the model, learn about advanced facilitation, and discuss what it means to make an impact with En-ROADS in the real world. You will learn to explain to others why the model does what it does, and more importantly, how the world and climate respond to different solutions which address climate change. This course includes 8 total webinars, each running for 60 minutes (often with 10-30 minutes of informal post-webinar Q&A discussions).

IDEAL has launched the Food Security COVID-19 Learning Series, which aims to convene USAID's Office of Food for Peace-funded development and emergency activity implementers to share among peers their experiences, the challenges they are encountering, and practical approaches for adapting programming in light of COVID-19.

IDEAL consulted with a range of stakeholders to inform this peer-to-peer learning series, which will evolve in response to implementing partners' expressed needs. Below you will find more information about upcoming sessions under a number of initial learning streams. While some sessions are initially restricted to specific audiences, we plan to share post-event products and open up these conversations to a broader audience in a later phase. 

The series is divided in 5 learning streams. A learning stream is a thematic area with potential for impact in development and emergency food security programming quality during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. These streams are: monitoring and evaluation, safety and security, online collaboration, cash & food distribution, and addressing at-risk populations.
