Webinar Presentation: Managing continuity and preparedness of school feeding programmes under COVID-19 and the South-South Cooperation role
Slide presentation of the webinar held on 21 July 2020. At least 310 million school children are currently missing school meals in 162 countries. The massive impact of school closures has highlighted the importance of school feeding programmes that provide a crucial, widespread safety net that supports vulnerable children and their families. Many low- and middle-income countries are adapting their programmes to continue supporting children during school closures and will soon turn their attention towards school reopening. As schools start to reopen, South-South Cooperation, as a means for knowledge exchange and technical assistance, can contribute to programme adaption and resilience. This webinar presented the global scenario and the tools available to support school feeding programmes in Latin America, Asia, and Sub-Saharan Africa while the crisis’ effects last.
