The Food Security and Complex Emergencies information portal was a comprehensive online database that focused on various aspects of emergencies as they relate to food security. The project is now closed.
Much of our work in this area is carried out at country level. With a focus on preventing or mitigating crisis, bridging the gap between short and long term responses to crises, and strengthening the resilience of households, livelihoods, communities and countries to shock and stress.
We analyse the economic, political and social causes of food insecurity; assess the food security impact of crisis and crisis response, elaborate criteria and information needs to better characterise and understand crises, and give guidance to context-specific programmes and policy responses.
