    Conflict and fragility are at the core of some of the biggest challenges today – they are able to hinder development progress and also to reverse any development gains. Environmental factors are rarely, if ever, the sole cause of conflicts. Countries can experience vulnerable conditions at different level of intensity and under different dimensions: from socio-economic, to environmental to human health. Crises generated by global pandemics, such as COVID–19, can have further negative effects on fragile contexts. Natural resources management, in particular land and water resources, also becomes a most critical challenges under such dire situations. The “Strengthening natural resources management capacities to revitalise agriculture in fragile contexts” project stems from the recognition of the importance of investing in human capital in fragile contexts. The project aims at addressing the loss of human capacity provoked by fragility in Libya, Niger and Mali, three countries equally confronted with the need to improve natural resources management, strengthen national institutions and boost human capital to enhance agricultural productivity, improve food security and progress towards the SDGs. The E-learning nugget report provides an overview of the capacity development activities carried out during the first phase of the project and topics addressed. The report illustrates the participants' responses and an elaboration of pre- and post-training assessments.

    Unlike any other crisis, the COVID-19 pandemic significantly impacted food value chains at all levels (production, processing, logistics and even consumer behaviour to name a few). The impacts vary across countries and are constantly changing with the spread of the pandemic as governments, stakeholders and other actors in value chains adopt and implement a broad spectrum of measures to manage the spread of the virus and mitigate its impacts on food insecurity and poverty. The present brief reviews secondary information pertinent to the impacts of COVID-19 on dairy producing/processing cooperatives, and their coping strategies, with a view to developing policy recommendations that focus on food loss and waste reduction. Toward that end, this brief reviews the issues in the context of two countries with large and small dairy cooperatives, namely the Republic of India and Japan. It makes use of secondary information structured in a manner to highlight the impacts of the pandemic and the measures adopted by cooperatives to mitigate its impacts at different levels of the value chain and reduce loss and waste. In view of the importance of the interventions of governments across the entire value chain, the policy brief provides an overview.
