From the Editor

While there are at least four distinct thematic areas addressed by articles in Field Exchange 37, there is arguably one cross-cutting issue - namely the tendency towards fragmentation and lack of coordination within the emergency nutrition sector. We will return to this later. This issue of Field Exchange carries a number of research summaries related to the role of data and indicators in emergencies.

From the editor

In this issue of Field Exchange, there are two themes which previous editorials have not addressed - sustainability of interventions and how markets can create, as well as be used to respond, to emergencies. We also revisit one 'old chestnut' - namely the rich vein of innovation that runs through our sector.

Use of the word 'sustainability' in an emergency context always needs qualification and nuancing. Are we talking about sustainability of capacity, resources, demand for services, a product or institutional sustainability?

Summary of published paper1
Acute Shigellosis can be one of the major causes of mortality in emergencies. Between 46-63,000 Rwandan refugees were believed to have died from dysentery (Shigella dysenteria type 1) in the Goma camps in Eastern Zaire during 1994/5. World-wide, it is estimated that shigellosis accounts for about 15% of diarrhoea-associated deaths in children below 5 years of age.
