Impact of Food Prices Rises On Malnutrition and Food Security
- International food and oil prices soared until further in 2008 and translated in varying degrees into higher domestic food prices causing food riots in over 30 countries.

The Food Security Monitoring System (FSMS) provides a seasonal snapshot of food security in rural Tajikistan by analyzing data from 665 households and 475 key informants every three months. The FSMS can alert stakeholders to incidents of critical food insecurity requiring short-term interventions. The exact methodology is contained in annexes.
This United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) covers the period 2010-2015, and has been designed to support Tajikistan's goals for its National Development Strategy (NDS) and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Developed through an extensive consultative process involving all stakeholders, it is also part of the donors' Joint Country Partnership Strategy (JCPS), which came about as a result of the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness.
