The purpose of the study was to evaluate the value added of the AGIR process on the governance of food and nutrition security. It focused on the main political, institutional and financial changes brought about by implementing the Regional Roadmap. The study revealed significant changes in terms of political, institutional and financial commitments and, more generally, improvements in the governance of food and nutrition security. The AGIR process has raised public awareness around hunger, malnutrition and social protection issues and has opened up discussion on the vulnerability of populations, as well as structural and cyclical causes. The best practices drawn from the analysis was shared with Alliance stakeholders.
