Looking at food insecurity in Afghan migrants

This workshop will focus on the nature of and potential responses to food insecurity in Sydney’s Afghan community. It aims to draw together diverse perspectives on household food insecurity to explore its patterns, causes, and consequences. University of Sydney PhD student, Luke Craven, will present his primary research on the determinants of food access for newly arrived Afghan migrants –comparing the experiences of varied communities in Sydney, London and San Francisco –to explore potential policy and program interventions with workshop participants.

The workshop is co-organised by the Charles Perkins Centre Global Food and Nutrition Security Node and the Sydney Environment Institute.
