Training of new Market Information specialists in South Sudan

Nov 2015

To strengthen the current Market Information System (MIS) in South Sudan, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is building the capacity of national institutions to collect, analyse and use information about food, agriculture and markets. In partnership with the Ministry of Agriculture, Famine Early Warning Systems Network (FEWSNET) and the National Bureau of Statistics, FAO has completed nationwide training on market price data collection. As a result, 120 new Market Information Specialists are now contributing to the data flow throughout the country – up to county level.
