Mozambique hosts an interactive training on the Cost of Hunger study with support from REACH
From 6 to 10 June 2016, Mozambique’s National Food Security and Nutrition Secretariat (SETSAN), which is tasked with coordinating nutrition action in the country, hosted a five-day, multi-country, interactive training on the Cost of Hunger in Africa (COHA) in Maputo.
National government representatives and UN focal points from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Lesotho, Mali, Mauritania, Mozambique and Zimbabwe were trained by staff from the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) and facilitators from the WFP Country Office in Addis Ababa, with support from representatives at the African Union Commission (AUC) and the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD). Results from these respective COHA studies are anticipated at varying times between late-2016 and mid-2017.
