The Philippine Food and Nutrition Security Atlas (PFNSA) provides a political and physical map of an initial analysis of trends and the most recent available data of selected determinants of food security and malnutrition, including food production and imports, economic access to food, food consumption and utilization and relevant social parameters. The PFNSA indicators provided a picture of the national, regional and provincial situation. PFNSA is built around the indicators used by the National Government. It is deemed that this would contribute in building the geographical database targeted to help policy makers, national government agencies, local government units, non-government organizations, researchers, and interest groups in planning, deciding on the most appropriate intervention and allocating the finite resources to where the most vulnerable are.
