The collaboration between Provincial Food Security Office (FSO) NTB and the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) brings us the Provincial Food Security & Vulnerability Atlas (FSVA) of Nusa Tenggara Barat (NTB) Province 2010. Provincial FSVA covering 105 sub-districts in 8 rural districts that consolidated many variables of the food security aspects such as food availability, food access and distribution, and health and nutrition. Provincial FSVA serves as an important tool for decision making in targeting and developing recommendations for responding to food and nutrition insecurity at the district and sub-districts levels.
Analyzed 13 indicators related to food security for the period of 2007-2009, and composite analysis of 9 of them allow the FSVA to answer three key questions on food security and its vulnerability: Where are the higher vulnerable to food insecurity (by district, sub-district); How Many are they (estimated population); and Why are they higher vulnerable (main determinants for food insecurity)?.
The provincial FSVA are available in bilingual (Bahasa Indonesia and English).
