About this report
This report is based on presentations and discussions at the workshop “The Impact of Capacity Development on Food Security”, held in Stockholm, on 3 March 2016. It was organised by SLU Global, in collaboration with the Swedish International Agriculture Network Initiative (SIANI).
The workshop gathered Swedish academics and officials with their counterparts from partner countries. The purpose was to analyse and share past experiences, and provide tentative recommendations for future projects and programmes for capacity development on food security.
This document is a synthesis of the insights of academics and officials with different backgrounds and experiences in the area of food security. Therefore, some of those insights and recommendations may seem divergent and even contradictory.
The aim of the workshop was not to provide final or agreed recommendations but to provide a ground for further and deeper discussions about capacity development for food security, and the Swedish involvement in the area.
