View original


This follow-up Emergency Food Security Assessment was undertaken to provide updated information on household food security to:

  • capture changes in the food security situation and coping mechanisms used by households compared to last summer, reflecting (i) the post-harvest and winter time period, (ii) increased food prices, and (iii) the lagging effects of the June violence on the economy and livelihoods;

  • inform the design of a 2-year Protracted Relief and Recovery Operation (PRRO) to address the immediate and recovery food assistance requirements of households affected by these shocks;

  • update the baseline for the set up of a sentinel-based Food Security Monitoring System8 (FSMS) complementary to the government KIHS.
