CERFAM has a service offer that is two-fold: (i) identify, document, promote and disseminate good practices at country level in Africa, and (ii) act as a catalyst by deploying expertise for the implementation of good practices through capacity building and south-south cooperation. We are looking for good practices, especially those generated in Africa, from a wide array of national and regional institutions and development actors to support countries’ efforts to achieve food and nutritional security in Africa.
Good practices that are simple, relevant, cost-effective, adaptable, impactful, replicable and scalable have a huge potential to bring about the transformations needed to inform locally-owned and durable hunger solutions. When they are anchored on a robust evidence base, good practices constitute powerful means to facilitate sharing of experience, expertise, knowledge and know-how for securing enhanced ownership and sustainability of policies and programmes aimed at eradicating hunger and combatting malnutrition.
CERFAM’s vision is to be a catalyst for good practice to eliminate hunger and malnutrition on the continent by supporting and promoting national and regional initiatives in response to the growing demand for endogenous, innovative and sustainable, generated in Africa. Good practices and lessons learned are crucial elements of effective and efficient knowledge management that encourages continuous learning and review of interventions to make sure that factors of success and are understood, reviewed and better applied in the future.
To offer these services, CERFAM relies on four key pillars: Research, Technical Assistance, Partnership, and Communication and Advocacy.
