International Scientific Symposium on Food & Nutrition Security Information
Jan 17 - 19, 2012
FAO Headquarters
Rome Italy

p. +39 06 570 55138

Ten years after the 2002 International Scientific Symposium on the Measurement of Food Deprivation and Undernutrition, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations is organizing a new symposium to examine emerging trends in measuring Food and Nutrition Security Information and linking it more closely to decision-making.

Interpretation for the event will be provided in French and Spanish on January 17 and January 19.

The 2002 ISS was the beginning of a global partnership for improving the measurement of undernourishment to monitor progress towards the World Food Summit goals. The 2002 ISS identified the need to further develop indicators for:

  • measuring hunger
  • understanding the complexity of food insecurity and vulnerability
  • helping FAO monitor progress made in reducing hunger

Progress made since 2002 and future challenges

Since 2002, research, field activities and the increasing use of information networks have greatly contributed towards improving how we measure food insecurity and malnutrition. 

Yet chronic and severe poverty persists in many parts of the world, and new challenges such as price volatility and climate change have emerged. If countries are to develop effective policies and programmes to meet these challenges, there is a critical need for valid and accurate information to strengthen effective decision-making.
