Sharing Knowledge

The Knowledge Sharing work stream focuses on disseminating research and building the evidence base, including activities related to the Scorecard Report and Evidence Summit, REFINE, and the FAQR website.”

Sharing Knowledge

The Knowledge Sharing team aims to:

  • Build greater awareness and visibility for FAQR by highlighting and sharing FAQR research findings, best practices, tools, and recommendations among target audiences through a range of communication tools and channels. 
  • Promote the use and implementation of FAQR evidence-based findings, best practices, tools, and recommendations to a wide range of stakeholders in international nutrition assistance, including key officials at USAID and USDA. 
  • Foster conversations related to international harmonization and coordination of food aid efforts. 
  • Host an Evidence Summit to share the current state of evidence related to food assistance for nutrition, how this evidence can inform policy and programs, and what research gaps still exist in food assistance for nutrition evidence.
  • Strengthen FAQR communications through increased information sharing and an improved and more user-friendly FAQR website.
  • Engage with the food aid community, including researchers, policymakers, and programmers, through the Research Engagement on Food Innovations for Nutrition Effectiveness (REFINE) website and Twitter page. REFINE is a knowledge sharing-mechanism that aims to improve the effectiveness of food-supported interventions by gathering and enhancing accessibility to ongoing and published studies and policy publications.”
