The two phases of the Rapid EFSA in Afghanistan were carried out in different districts of the 14 most drought affected provinces of the northern, northeastern, western and central highlands areas. The 1st phase of EFSA generated planning figures used in the update of the Consolidated Appeal (CAP) and for individual Agency planning. The consolidated assessment (1st and 2nd phase) will provide more refined quantitative and comparable information on the impact of the dry conditions on the affected population as it uses more data covering the heterogeneous affected provinces.

During July and September 2002, a nationwide assessment to estimate the levels to which rural settled populations in Afghanistan could meet food requirements in the coming year, was conducted. This assessment did not cover internally displaced people, returnee populations, or migrating pastoralists, unless they were settled in the villages assessed.

This report provides the preliminary analysis of the survey that WFP Afghanistan‘s VAM unit together with a number of NGOs, undertook in July and August 2001. This survey covered the entire country during this two-months period, with the exception of areas inaccessible for security reasons. This survey was conducted at two analytical levels. The first level refers to the average food security of a district. The second level goes deeper to determine variations among agro-ecological and socio-economic conditions. This shows that some specific areas can be food insecure in a district with an overall low level of food insecurity. Conversely, in districts that are classified as highly food insecure, some areas were found to enjoy reasonable food security.
