Comprehensive Food Security and Vulnerability Analysis (CFSVA): Guidelines
Understanding food security and vulnerability has always been challenging. Yet the emergence of relatively new phenomena such as the recent high food and fuel prices, the global financial crisis, and climate change, all highlight the need to better understand the lives and livelihoods of vulnerable populations so that effective policies and actions can be implemented to save lives and address the root causes of hunger.
Over the last four years WFP, along with partners, has completed 27 CFSVAs worldwide.This was in large part made possible due to generous support from the European Commission’s Humanitarian Aid department (ECHO), the Citigroup Foundation and the Gates Foundation.
This document, built on this experience, will guide WFP food security analysts, programme officers and partner's staff as they undertake Comprehensive Food Security and Vulnerability Analyses.
