This CFSVA report mainly builds on the Food Security and Vulnerability Analysis household survey designed and implemented in 2011-2012 by WFP in partnership with the Ministry of Agriculture, the National Nutrition Program, the National Institute of Statistics, FAO, UNICEF, NGOs, national and international members of the food security cluster. The survey covered 24,884 rural households in 10 provinces. A stratified and multi-stage sampling approach was used to provide estimates of a set of food and nutritional security indicators at the provincial and national levels.
This report includes specific findings on the number of food insecure and vulnerable people in the country, the geographic distribution of the food insecure and vulnerable groups, their characteristics, their capacity to manage shocks, and the driving forces of food insecurity and vulnerability.
