Questionnaire on the Proposed FAO Food Security Commitment and Capacity Profile

Dear Members,

In 2012 FAO started to adapt the balanced scorecard methodology to assess and track performance of national authorities in terms of their commitment and capacity to act on food insecurity and malnutrition.
 
The idea was to identify a set of measures that would provide a quick but comprehensive view of countries’ commitments and institutional capacities in order to support informed dialogue and planning, prioritise investments, and monitor public performance. This resulted in the Food Security Commitment and Capacity Profile (FSCCP), which provides a snapshot of national governments’ commitments and capacities to address food insecurity and malnutrition along different dimensions. 
 
Currently the FSCCP forms the basis of the results framework for FAO’s work on eradicating hunger food insecurity and malnutrition and is used for planning and performance monitoring in various countries.
 
On the basis of the FSCCP, the Statistics Division is now investigating the possibility of developing an aggregate index for the FSCCP and has prepared a short explanation and a questionnaire to receive your comments.
 
 
It is also available in French and Spanish.

For any further information, please contact Elliot.Berry@fao.org
 
Thank you for your cooperation,

Questionnaire: Proposed FAO Suite of Indicators for Global Monitoring of Food Security and Nutrition

The FAO Statistics Division has recently developed a new suite of indicators for monitoring Food Security and Nutrition at the global level. The suite was presented in the State of Food Insecurity in the World 2013. Work is underway to try and summarize these indicators in an aggregated index.

In order to assess the relative importance of the various dimensions of Food Security in building this aggregate index, the FAO Statistics Division is organizing a stakeholder consultation with representatives of national government, regional and international institution, NGO and the private sector.

We have created a short questionnaire which we would be grateful if you could answer.

You can take the survey in English here.

Alternatively you can also access a French or Spanish version.
