2017 Margaret Gilliam Lecture Series on Food Security


Macdonald-Stewart Building MS2-022 (Faculty Lounge), 21111 Lakeshore Road, St Anne de Bellevue, QC, H9X 3V9, CA

Andrew Rzepa, Project Managing Partner at Gallup, will deliver a presentation on the FAO's Voices of the Hungry project, Diet Quality and Gender Equality 

On behalf of the United Nations and through the World Poll, Gallup annually measures food insecurity across 140 countries using the Food Insecurity Experience Scale (FIES). Andrew Rzepa will discuss the challenges the project has faced over the past five years, FIES’s adoption as a Sustainable Development Goal 2 indicator and how other UN organisations such the World Food Programme plan to use FIES to understand the relationship between gender equality and food security. Finally, new developments and measurement frameworks Gallup is involved in will be presented, including the development of an indicator for the measurement of diet quality on a global scale. 

Everyone is welcome to attend.
