The Jameel Observatory for Food Security Early Action has been created to help tackle the growing threat to people in the world’s drylands posed by the increasing severity and frequency of climate-related disasters. The venture brings together leading research and humanitarian agencies – the University of Edinburgh, the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), Save the Children, the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL), and Community Jameel – to harness data and technology in a bid to stop climate shocks resulting in hunger in vulnerable livestock farming communities.

Our interdisciplinary research focusses on three key themes. These are ‘Agri-Food Systems Innovation’, ‘Food, People, Planet’ and ‘Data-Driven Innovation'.
