Title:

Third Examination of the Stakeholders’ Usage of the Web-based Food Security and Nutrition Information System

Abstract:

Despite be rice surplus at the national level, Cambodia still faces challenges to ensure food security and
some of highest rate of malnutrition at sub-national level. Food security and nutrition (FSN) are therefore still major components of poverty alleviation strategies and key discussion topics amongst policy-makers and development practitioners in Cambodia.
The "Food Security and Nutrition Information System" (FSNIS) enhances the work of the bi-monthly Food Security Forum (FSF), organised by CARD, and the Technical Working Group on Food Security and Nutrition (TWGFSN), chaired by CARD and co-chaired by the Ministry of Planning and World Food Program.To disseminate FSN information among a wide range of government institutions, nongovernmental (NGOs) and development partners (DP) involved in planning and implementing FSN
activities and to offer a publicly available repository of knowledge on this cross-cutting issue, the "Food Security and Nutrition Information System" (FSNIS) was established in 2004. In addition to the web-site (www.foodsecurity.gov.kh), a CD-ROM is regularly produced and supplied FSN stakeholders lacking Internet access with all relevant FSN information and knowledge.
