About Field Exchange

Field Exchange is ENN's flagship online and print publication on nutrition and food security in emergencies and high burden contexts.  

The first edition was produced in 1996 in response to a demand by international agencies for a way to capture and rapidly ‘exchange’ humanitarian programming experiences, to share relevant research, evaluations, news and offer a platform for technical views.

 

"Field Exchange is the place I look to for best practices in the field, new exciting research developments, and trending topics." 

ENN partner and Field Exchange reader 

 

Field Exchange enables fast track publication of programming experiences of relevance to nutrition in emergencies and high burden contexts. We include both original and summaries of relevant research. We welcome suggestions for articles to feature in Field Exchange at any time. 

We feature articles across sectors and from a range of contexts, from acute emergencies to fragile and conflict affected states. Once a year we produce an edition with a special focus. Previous special issues have been on adolescent nutrition, HIV programming in Southern Africa, on the Syria crisis, on nutrition-sensitive programming and most recently, on wasting and stunting (WaSt). View all of our themed content here. 

 

"Field Exchange gives me the opportunity to learn what others are doing in the field and gives me ideas to improve design of programmes."

Field Exchange reader 

 

Field Exchange is produced three times a year in English. All editions are available online and in print. A selection of content is available in French. Between print schedules, we post early online content. To complement print edition, we feature bonus content online. We can support you to write about your experiences.
