Estimaciones globales sobre la inseguridad alimentaria aguda en 2017
• Alrededor de 124 millones de personas en 51 países se enfrentan a una situación de Crisis de inseguridad alimentaria o peor (equivalente o superior a la fase 3 del IPC/CH) y requieren una acción humanitaria urgente para salvar vidas, proteger los medios de vida y reducir los niveles de hambre y desnutrición aguda.
Estimations mondiales de l’insécurité alimentaire aiguë en 2017
• Environ 124 millions de personnes vivant dans 51 pays sont en situation d’insécurité alimentaire de Crise ou pire (Phase 3 ou pire de l’IPC ou du CH ou équivalent) et requièrent une action humanitaire urgente afin de sauver des vies, protéger les moyens d’existence et réduire les déficits de consommation alimentaire et la malnutrition aiguë.
Acute food insecurity global estimates in 2017
• Around 124 million people in 51 countries face Crisis food insecurity or worse (equivalent of IPC/CH Phase 3 or above). They require urgent humanitarian action to save lives, protect livelihoods, and reduce hunger and malnutrition.
The purpose of this document is to assist policy and program planners and implementers, designers and managers, evaluators and analysts to target interventions and measure progress in food security and nutrition. Indicators for concepts such as stunting and wasting, diet diversity and nutrient adequacy or food insecurity have proliferated in recent years, leading to widespread confusion about the best indicators for any given situation.
DEVEX has released an interview with WFP’s Chief Economist Arif about what mobile technology can offer food security monitoring. Husain is head of the Vulnerability Analysis and Mapping department, which boasts a network of 150 food security analysts in more than 70 countries, tasked with gathering “actionable food security information”. In 2012, the organization piloted mobile Vulnerability Analysis and Mapping (mVAM), in the Democratic Republic of Congo, to collect food security data remotely.
1. Executive Summary
This document describes the landscape of key actors concerned with producing and sharing information for Food and Nutrition Security, both in emergency and in development contexts, with whom FSIN intends to collaborate in building a global Community of Practice (CoP).
It provides an overview of global and regional networks, initiatives and organizations that were selected based on their relevance to food security and nutrition information and knowledge exchange.
The Food Security Information Network supports the development and harmonization of resilience measurement methods. A technical working group composed of renowned experts was constituted to lead the identification of resilience measurement principles and the development of a common analytical framework and technical guidelines for measurement.
This paper is an initial step toward the development of resilience measurement design used by stakeholders (e.g. programme staff, monitoring and evaluation, policy makers). It outlines:
The aim of the Food Security Information Network (FSIN) is to be a platform for knowledge sharing in all aspects relating to the generation and communication of food security and nutrition information. FSIN also acts as an advocate and facilitator for timely and evidencebased decision-making in food security and nutrition. FSIN will support and collaborate with existing information systems or networks at country, regional and global levels.
In October 2012, FAO, IFPRI and WFP officially launched the Food Security Information Network (FSIN) to enable developing countries to build sustainable food and nutrition information systems. FSIN has established a global community of practice (CoP) linking a broad range of partners to facilitate the exchange of experiences and field practices in food security and nutrition information and analysis among national, regional and other global or thematic networks.
