Title: Regional Network on AIDS, Livelihoods and Food Security (IFPRI-RENEWAL)
URL: http://programs.ifpri.org/renewal/index.htm
Creator: International Food Policy Research Institute
Abstract: RENEWAL is a growing regional network-of-networks facilitated by IFPRI. Currently active in Kenya, Malawi, South Africa, Uganda, and Zambia, RENEWAL comprises national networks of food- and nutrition-relevant organizations (public, private, and nongovernmental) together with partners in AIDS and public health. RENEWAL aims to enhance understanding of the worsening interactions between HIV/AIDS and food and nutrition security and to facilitate a comprehensive response to these interactions. The core pillars are locally prioritized action research, capacity strengthening, and policy communications. RENEWAL is operated on the idea that the process of developing networks is both a means and an end. Impact can be enhanced and sustained when locally prioritized research is linked with capacity strengthening and policy communications. [according to site editor's information; editors ilissAfrica]
