On October 23, 2020 the Swedish FAO Committee together with SIANI organized an online event to commemorate World Food Day 2020, gathering a multi-stakeholder line-up of Swedish actors working with food security and development internationally and in Sweden. Watch the recording to catch up with the issues discussed during this webinar titled "Grow. Nourish, Sustain. Together".

En miljon barn riskerar mista livet innan årets slut 12,000 människor per dag avlider dagligen till följd av hunger till följd av COVID-19 Fattigdomen ökar för första gången på 30 år

One in four of the world’s children are stunted, in developing countries the proportion can rise to one in three. One out of six children – roughly 100 million – in developing countries is underweight (WFP, 2016).
368 million children in 169 countries receive food in school. Since 2000, 21 new countries have introduced school feeding (WFP, 2013). Milk is served to children in school in around 60 countries, either as a component of a school feeding programme or as a separate milk programme (IDF, 2015).
School feeding is a good investment for a country – for every $1 spent, it is estimated that at least $3 is gained in economic returns (WFP, 2013).
Sustainable school feeding programmes are effective measures to improve health and education for vulnerable groups.
The strongest and most sustainable school feeding programmes incorporate community involvement. (WFP). Locally sourced foods in school feeding programmes also benefit local agriculture and farmers (WFP).
As a follow up to the school milk survey conducted in 2013 (and published in 2015) IDF conducted a new global school milk survey during 2019 which was published in March 2020 – “The contribution of school milk programmes to the nutrition of children worldwide”. The survey involves a questionnaire-based survey and a literature review on the nutritional impact of school milk programmes (SMP). The survey looks into all forms of school milk, also those programmes where milk is served as part of a school meals programme. Tetra Laval helped spread the questionnaire and also provided additional data from countries not participating. The School Milk Survey is available in IDF Bulletin 505/2020. Also available is the data collected, presented in an Excel sheet. https://store.fil-idf.org/product/school-milk-programmes-2020/. Some key data from the Survey Report: The analysis showed that at least 160 million children across 62 countries benefit from SMPs in the world. The participation rates vary across countries, but the participation rate is over 70% in at least 23 countries. Milk is mainly handed out in classrooms (77%). In the majority of programmes (71%), milk is served as individual portions of 200–250 ml. The most common serving size is 200 ml (46%). Plain whole milk is the most commonly available product. Plain semi-skimmed milk also ranks high. Other dairy products such as yogurt, flavoured milk and lactose-reduced milk are also offered in many cases. Respondents indicated that milk is supplied most often in cartons (81%). Plastic bottles is used in 30% of the programmes. A majority of respondents reported that improving children’s health and nutrition is the primary objective of the programme.
The availability of Long-life products was analysed in the survey. Combined with Tetra Laval data on UHT products availability, the conclusion is that UHT or Long-life products are used in 73% of the countries covered by the Survey. Table 2 and Figure 1 in the Survey Report should be read with caution as the data is very confusing and partly incorrect. A separate explanation is available from Tetra Laval FfD.

Topic: Information and communication technology for future harvests
Discussed under the project titled
Digital Information Management System (DIMS) Project
Dairy Association of Zambia (DAZ)
Presented by Zoole Newa
Embassy of Sweden in Lusaka
Grow, Nourish Sustain. Together
• Dairy Association of Zambia (DAZ) is a member based organisation
with direct memebrship of over 6,000 dairy farmers and more than
50,000 indirect beneficiaries.
• DAZ organises Milk business around the Milk Collection Centre
(MCC) – business hub.
• Currently, DAZ manages about 67 MCCs country wide
• The Sida funded DAZ to implement a digital pilot project – 2 years
• It is implemented with 32 MCCs.
• Target 2,600 direct beneficiaries and more than 15,000 indirect
Overall objective of DIMS
To improve the dairy production and productivity through
a digital platform that will enhance commercialisation of the dairy
- baseline survey in MCCs
- sensitisation meetings
- Profiling of farmers, input suppliers, processors
- facilitations of DIMS activities eg formation of savings groups,
business trainings, dairy management trainings etc
Role of DAZ
• Data Management and
• Faciliatates linkages ,
• Training and senstisation,
• Member mobilisation,
• Lobby and Networking
• Promotion of good governance
amongst its members.
Main challenges of the dairy sector in Zambia
• Limited participation of women and youths
• Low milk productivity and production
• Poor quality of milk produced
• High cost of production;
• Poor record keeping
• Limited access to regular extension
• Limited to breeding stocks and AI services
• Frequent animal disease outbreaks;
• Limited access to inputs and credit
• Drought/ limited water sources
• Limited private sector participants
• Limited coordination among stakeholders.
• Outbreak of COVID 19
• Internet problems
• Data base of dairy farmers has been correctly captured including the milk
production levels of each farm
• Base on the information on the system, the DAZ extension staff can now
easily make follow up on each farmer to address the issues of production and
• Extension messages and alerts are easily disseminated to the DAZ members
at reduced costs and time (in some instances voice calls are sent.
• The farmers have improved access to inputs such as medicines, feed etc
which are now mostly supplied in bulk
• Improved information delivery from MCC to farmers (Market, Extension and
general MCC information)
• Improved record keeping at MCC and farmer levels including at DAZ offices
• Improved transaction processes ( eg processor to farmer , farmer to input
• Improved access to credit through introduced savings and credit groups and
loan repayments done in instalments through the platform.
• Recorded improvement of milk transactions along the value chain than before
• New entrants on the value chain (input suppliers, women and youth)
• Enhanced Governance within DAZ and MCC through trainings on
governance and development of policies – Gender, Anti – corruption, Board
Charter, Finance and HR.
• Enhance human capital development in the use of ICT in the dairy sector
Performance of DIMS during COVID
• Supply of milk to MCC was limited due to restriction of movement during the
early stages of the outbreak – affected the entire value chain.
• Thus technical extension messages were transmitted to the general
membership (voice calls, and SMS)
• COVID related sensitisation were easily transmitted to the members using the
• Youth in transport business (motor bike deliveries) made additional income as
most farmers used them to avoid congestion at the MCC.
• Transactions continued to be made using the system (even more appreciated
• Bulk demands for inputs were now more pronounced to the advantage of
both the farmer and suppliers.
• Other activities could not take place eg governance meetings at MCCs, face
to face trainings etc
• The world is currently off track to
achieve the SDG targets for
hunger and malnutrition
• The number of people suffering
from hunger has been slowly
increasing since 2014.
SDG 2End hunger, achieve food security and
improved nutrition and promote sustainable
• 135 million people in need of acute
• 74 million food insecure people in
• 80 percent of humanitarian
resources are allocated to conflict
690million people or 1 in 9 of the
world's population – suffered
from hunger last year
A global overview
• Refugees and internally displaced
people are among the most
vulnerable to shocks
• More than half of the refugees are
hosted in countries with high
numbers of acute food-insecurity.
79million people displaced worldwide
• Conflict, economic crisis and
climate-related shocks put
pressure on already vulnerable
• In a worst case scenario, the
pandemic threatens to almost
double the number of acutely
hungry people globally.
130million people in risk of falling into chronic
hunger due to COVID-19
