Regional workshop on IFE in Bali 2008

A three day strategy workshop/one day training on Infant and Young Child Feeding in Emergencies (IFE) is scheduled to be held in Bali, Indonesia on 10-13th March, 2008. This workshop is being organised under the auspices of the Inter Agency Standing Committee (IASC) Global Nutrition Cluster1 that is led by UNICEF. Within the cluster, the main organiser is the IFE Core Group2, in cooperation with UNICEF East Asia and Pacific Regional Office, UNICEF South Asia Regional Office and the Ministry of Health, Indonesia. The Emergency Nutrition Network (ENN) as co-ordinator and representative3 of the IFE Core Group is co-facilitating this workshop. The workshop is funded by the Global Nutrition Cluster and by contributions and inkind support of IFE Core Group members.

This strategy workshop on IFE has been identified as a key step to help improve coordination, policy guidance, implementation and response capacity in the region. The focus of the workshop is on emergency preparedness and improving the early response to protect and support IFE. Indonesia was chosen as the hosting country in order to learn from their IFE experiences in the recent tsunami and earthquake responses.

The workshop will bring together participants from a mixture of key government, UN, donor, international and local NGO representatives from 16 countries - Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Maldives, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Timor-Leste and Viet Nam.
