Mission and objectives

CERFAM is a regional hub for exchanges, partnership-building and South-south cooperation, which allows developing countries to access the best available expertise, knowledge and technical assistance to support them in their efforts to advance in the implementation of SDG2. It facilitates and mobilizes high-level expertise, promotes hunger and nutrition solutions, through proven practices, innovative approaches and pioneering networks and communities of practice connecting national, regional and international stakeholders. CERFAM’s specific objectives are to: Support governments and development partners to advance in their efforts to implement the SDGs, particularly SDG2; Act as a knowledge hub for good practices and lessons learned, by facilitating the identification, documentation, exchange, dissemination, adoption and implementation/scale up of locally owned and durable solutions with effective impact on hunger and malnutrition; Strengthen, establish and mobilize strategic partnerships and alliances to support efforts and lasting solutions against hunger and malnutrition; Contribute to advocacy in the fight against hunger and malnutrition, ensuring synergies and complementarities with partners. The initial and ongoing inclusive and extensive consultations and reviews indicate a growing demand for investment in capacity strengthening from national governments, especially in school feeding and local purchase, post- harvest losses, nutrition sensitive/specific interventions, community resilience, agricultural development. Further consultations and analyzes of Zero Hunger Strategies are planned and are expected to contribute to validating the priority programmatic areas in which CERFAM will focus on.


In late 2020, CERFAM and WFP Côte d’Ivoire rolled out a few activities in collaboration with different partners, such as the Agency for the Development of Rice Sector (ADERIZ) and Africa Rice Center (AfricaRice), under the initiative. These activities include a diagnostic mission jointed conducted by CERFAM, WFP Côte d’Ivoire, AfricaRice and ADERIZ in late November and an on-site post-harvest training co-organised by CERFAM, WFP Côte d’Ivoire and ADERIZ. A few equipment, such as threshers, peelers and cultivator were also procured to support the production of the target communities. To further strengthen the capacity of local actors in rice sector in Northern Côte d’Ivoire, an online training on rice post-harvest management will be organised with the support of Chinese rice experts. Based on the needs identified in the diagnostic mission conducted in late November, the training content will be summarized in a technical guidance, which will assist the participants in consolidating the newly acquired knowledge.
