Great New Web Site from Lille University

The Partners and Food in Emergency and Development Aid (PFEDA) web site has now been launched. (http://www.univ-lille1.fr/pfeda/). This web site provides two interactive databases on the different actors involved in emergency and development aid, and the foods allocated as part of this work. PARTNERS is a data base on the institutions, private/public companies and individuals involved in the emergency and development sector. Over 2200 addresses and a classification of the organisa-tions/individuals work are currently available on this database. All you have to do is enter the name of the organisation you want to find out more about and all the details appear. Alternatively enter the country or region and the list of organisations in that country will appear. FOOD is a database on the food products used in emergency and development projects as well as detailed features about the food, e.g. origin (processor, supplier, broker), commercial name and generic name, category of product, detailed formulation, nutritional constituents, microbiological characteristics, technological characteristics, commercial or logistical specifications.

 

The site offers three types of service:

It is also hoped that the site will serve as a forum for discussion on subjects pertaining to emergency and development aid e.g. along the lines of NGONut. Indeed, NGO-Nut contributions are sorted thematically and published on this website. There is also other useful information - check it out for yourself and see.
