Sierra Leone Food Security Monitoring System Report August 2021

Author: WFP Sierra Leone
The August 2021 Food Security Monitoring System report shows a further deterioration in the Food Consumption Score (FCS), with the share of households with “poor” FCS increasing from 34 percent in June 2020 to 37 percent in August 2021. The proportion of households with “acceptable” FCS also reduced, from 29 percent in June 2020 to just 21 percent in August 2021. A deteriorating FCS undoubtedly reflects the impact of increasing food prices.
