National Demonstration Centre

The NDC on Food Security and Consumption Statistics from Household Income and expenditure Surveys (HIES) is a regional training activity where two participants from countries, one from the National Statistical Organization office and one from the National Office in charge of Food Security are invited.

The objectives of these meetings are to strengthen countries' statistical analytical capability for assessing and monitoring of the food situation in the country; and to derive relevant food security and consumption statistics from food data collected from recent surveys through the application of the FAO methodology.

A key aspect of this training is the use of the Food Security Statistics Module (FSSM) software - a set of statistical programs and procedures developed by FAO statistics, for the estimation of the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) 1.9, and other food security indicators at national and sub national levels.
