The comprehensive food security assessment was conducted in April 2012 by the State Ministry of Agriculture with support from WFP Sudan. The survey covered 9 localities in rural North Kordofan, distributed across eight different livelihood zones. The main objectives of the assessment are:
- to provide a reliable and detailed assessment of the current food security and vulnerability situation of the North Kordofan population;
- to assess some of the causes and risk factors for food insecurity and vulnerability and;
- to identify pockets of vulnerability where assistance and targeting may be required in the future.
