For better or worse, 2020 has changed us.  Looking back, we can see the lessons we’ve learned about health, resilience, collaboration, and our shared journey as part of one global community.

In these unprecedented times, when no place on the planet is immune to the effects of climate change, food insecurity continues to devastate vulnerable communities, and gender and social inequality are still widespread, it is more important than ever to remain an engaged, informed, and active global citizen.

To harness this energy and provide an avenue to explore global challenges and how to solve them, Counterpart International is offering a virtual learning series open to the public: Counterpart’s Global Ambassador Speaker Series. This new series is designed to give you the opportunity to learn about challenges facing communities around the world, while also engaging with other globally-minded individuals. 

Session 2: Wednesday, February 10th, from 1-2PM ET

COVID-19 and Food Security

COVID-19 is disrupting food, public health, and social protection systems and undermining the food and nutrition security of households in communities around the world. Our panelists will examine the convergence of COVID-19 and food insecurity in Guatemala, Senegal, and the United States and the four pillars that build the food and nutrition security framework: availability, access, utilization, and stability. 

Wednesday, February 10th, from 1-2PM ET

Panelists include:
Allison Lacko, Senior Nutrition Policy and Research Analyst, Food Research & Action Center (FRAC)
Maria Ester Bucaro, Guatemala Chief of Party, Counterpart International
Kathryn Lane, Senegal Chief of Party, Counterpart International

Moderated by Norma Toussaint, Senior Program Manager, Counterpart International
