We are a global network of professionals working on issues pertaining to the intersection of agriculture and nutrition. The group is informal, and designed to facilitate information sharing and networking. This Community of Practice arose in June 2010 when a number of DC-based professionals discovered that all were asked to write policy briefs on how to link agriculture and nutrition. The group formed to support knowledge-sharing and harmonization of guidance to these varied institutions. The main activities are a monthly, thematic conference call with a topic proposed by a group member, and an announcement-only email list.
