Regional Centre of Excellence against Hunger and Malnutrition, World Food Programme

Who We Are

The Regional Centre of Excellence against Hunger and Malnutrition (CERFAM) is a regional hub for exchanges, partnership building and South-South Cooperation. The result of a partnership between the Government of Côte d’Ivoire and the World Food Programme (WFP), CERFAM supports African countries in their national efforts to develop and implement sustainable policies and programmes to achieve Zero Hunger (SDG2) and combat all forms of malnutrition in line with the 2030 Agenda. Launched in March 2019, CERFAM responds to national Governments and regional institutions’ growing demands for capacity strengthening, technical expertise, knowledge management and South-South cooperation, especially in the areas of home-grown school feeding, post- harvest losses, nutrition interventions, community resilience and agricultural development. To this end, CERFAM identifies, documents, promotes, and disseminates good practices, while mobilizing high-level expertise for the implementation of these good practices through capacity building and South-South cooperation.

What We Do in the Project

In the HealthyDiets4Africa consortium, CERFAM leads the implementation of Work package (WP) 9, focusing on the “Policies and communication” component of the project. CERFAM’s activities include mapping, improving, and monitoring changes in policy and engagement promoting healthy diets.
