The study is based on a field survey of the markets in each of the union councils in Bannu and conducted by surveyors, mobilized by WFP’s cooperating partners in
the area. In each market, five traders were randomly selected (ratio of wholesalers and retailers, 3:2). The survey began on July 8, 2014 and completed on July 12,
2014. District Bannu is a relatively rural district populated with small markets at the UC level and no mega market structures. Mega markets are found only
in tehsil headquarters. A total of 165 traders were interviewed across all the union councils in Bannu; out of these 55 (33 percent) were wholesalers, the rest
were retailers.

This paper reviews wheat market dynamics in the Central Asia region. As a region whose countries experience perennial food deficits, trade plays a central role in ensuring adequate food availability. The paper is the result of fieldwork undertaken in spring 2011 to establish a better understanding of the dynamics, structure, trends, and constraints confronting the wheat marketing sector in the region, and to better understand the role that wheat trade plays in ensuring food security for the region. For the purposes of this study, the Central Asia region includes Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and the Islamic Republic of Iran.

The study is composed of two main parts: the vulnerability profile of the country and the shock simulation model. The first assesses the vulnerability context of Pakistan using baseline data (i.e. without shocks, identifies the areas and livelihood groups that are most vulnerable to potential shocks and describes the food security situation of households measured in terms of caloric intake. This vulnerability profile provides contextual information for the modeling by highlighting factors that make household sensible to market and climate shocks. Part two develops a framework for the Shock Impact Modeling System (SIMS) which estimates the impact of the recent market and climate shocks on household food consumption in Pakistan. The simulation results show which population groups are most affected by previous shocks and which ones are likely to be most affected by future shocks.
