The findings of the 2010/11 Annual Needs and Livelihood Analysis (ANLA) indicate an improvement in food security compared to 2009. About 9.7% of the population will be severely food insecure compared to 21% in 2009. The severely food insecure segment of the population is generally unable to meet the food and non-food needs from April onwards; the moderately food insecure segment is generally able to meet their food needs unless there is a major shock and is estimated at 26% compared to 32% in 2009.
This ANLA is based on the food security monitoring conducted in October 2010 covering 1831 households in 8 out of 10 states. Data from secondary sources were reviewed, analyzed and integrated by the Annual Needs and Livelihood Analysis Technical Group.
