This document summarizes the case studies that were discussed during a workshop focused on a discussion of the interlinked themes of disaster risk management, climate change adaptation and community resilience mainly from a food and nutrition security perspective. The 10 different case studies from Africa, Asia and Latin America, representing promising and/or innovative approaches to resilience building, were selected from a pool of over 30 projects submitted by different partners.
The workshop, organized by the World Food Programme (WFP) and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) in Rome on 9-10 November 2011, brought together over 70 practitioners and policymakers from some 20 different agencies and organizations, including national counterpart institutions.
This document was developed as preparatory background to the workshop. For each case study it provides an overview of the project and rationale, the main features of the project, a set of challenges faced, and the relevance of the project to the objective of building resilience and enhancing food and nutrition security. This document was prepared by the WFP Office for Climate Change, Environment and Disaster Risk Reduction with inputs from the field and in collaboration with partners.
