The first unit, Reporting Food Security Information, provides guidance in designing, writing and increasing the impact of food security reports in different contexts. Each lesson takes 3.5 hours and is delivered in an interactive self-paced dynamic learning environment which uses illustrated step-by-step instructions and exercises.

The target audience is:

Future units will cover other food security topics including assessments, indicators, information systems and networks, and communication and advocacy.

The course is available on line at: http://www.foodsecinfoaction.org/DL. It is also available on CDROM in English (free) that can be requested online. A French version is being prepared. For more information, contact: information-foraction@fao.org
