1 T HE C OPING S TRATEGY I NDEX (CSI) T HE C OPING S TRATEGY I NDEX (CSI) Sentinel Site Training- Kabul, Afghanistan May Aida Ndiaye Tools and Methodology Tools and Methodology

2 O VERVIEW CSI – basic LOGIC CSI – basic question CSI (reduced)– the indicator (or index) CSI – utility and utilization CSI – the tool CSI – computing the index CSI –understanding CSI scores Exercises

3 CSI – THE BASIC LOGIC When faced with a food shortfall, or the threat of a food shortfall, households enact a range of strategies (adjustments from ‘normal behavior’) to cope CSI utilizes the range of coping strategies enacted by a HH to derive a proxy indicator of its relative food insecurity status

4 CSI – BASIC QUESTION ‘What do you do when you don’t have enough food and don’t have enough money to buy food?’

5 CSI – THE INDICATOR ( OR REDUCED INDEX ) Is built around five questions that represent varying degrees of food coping strategies carried out by a household within the last 7 days. Is a composite indicator (or index) of HH food insecurity that combines the severity of the strategies and the frequency of use of the strategy a household enacts frequency*severity… Developed to be used to compare food security across different contexts. The more severe the coping strategies used by a HH and the more frequently they are used, the higher the CSI score The higher the CSI score, the more food insecure the household

6 CSI – UTILITY AND UTILIZATION Useful as both current (situation analysis) & leading indicator (early warning) HH can be compared within and between contexts

7 CSI – THE T OOL In the past 7 days, if there have been times when you did not have enough food or money to buy food, how often has your household had to: Frequen cy 0=never 1=rarely (1-2 days) 2=sometimes(3-4 days) 3=often (5-6 days) 4=every day (7 days) 1. Rely on less preferred and less expensive foods? |___| 2. Borrow food, or rely on help from a friend or relative? |___| 3.Limit portion size at mealtimes? |___| 4. Restrict consumption by adults in order for small children to eat? |___| 5.Reduce number of meals eaten in a day? |___|

8 Severity Score 1. Rely on less preferred and less expensive foods? 1 2. Borrow food, or rely on help from a friend or relative? 2 3.Limit portion size at mealtimes? 1 4. Restrict consumption by adults in order for small children to eat? 3 5.Reduce number of meals eaten in a day? 1 CSI – computing the index

9 CSI – COMPUTING THE INDEX A household’s CSI score is calculated by multiplying the frequency value (freq) of each coping strategy by its severity weight (sev) Summing the product of this calculation for the five consumption coping strategies included in the CSI list The formula is CSI = (freqCS1*sevCS1)+ (freqCS2*sevCS2)+ …… + (freqCS5*sevCS5)

10 Which livelihood group was more food insecure in Jan – 04? Which livelihood group has become more food insecure between Jan 04 – Jan 05? CSI – UNDERSTANDING CSI SCORES Pastoralists Riverine Farming

11 CSI – UNDERSTANDING CSI SCORES

12 E XERCISE 1 In the past 7 days, if there have been times when you did not have enough food or money to buy food, how often has your household had to: Frequen cy 0=never 1=rarely (1-2 days) 2=sometimes(3-4 days) 3=often (5-6 days) 4=every day (7 days) 1. Rely on less preferred and less expensive foods? 3 2. Borrow food, or rely on help from a friend or relative? 2 3.Limit portion size at mealtimes? 3 4. Restrict consumption by adults in order for small children to eat? 2 5.Reduce number of meals eaten in a day? 2 Compute the Index for household A

13 E XERCISE 2 In the past 7 days, if there have been times when you did not have enough food or money to buy food, how often has your household had to: Frequen cy 0=never 1=rarely (1-2 days) 2=sometimes(3-4 days) 3=often (5-6 days) 4=every day (7 days) 1. Rely on less preferred and less expensive foods? 4 2. Borrow food, or rely on help from a friend or relative? 2 3.Limit portion size at mealtimes? 3 4. Restrict consumption by adults in order for small children to eat? 2 5.Reduce number of meals eaten in a day? 3 Compute the Index for household B.

14 E XERCISE 3 In the past 7 days, if there have been times when you did not have enough food or money to buy food, how often has your household had to: Frequen cy 0=never 1=rarely (1-2 days) 2=sometimes(3-4 days) 3=often (5-6 days) 4=every day (7 days) 1. Rely on less preferred and less expensive foods? 4 2. Borrow food, or rely on help from a friend or relative? 1 3.Limit portion size at mealtimes? 2 4. Restrict consumption by adults in order for small children to eat? 0 5.Reduce number of meals eaten in a day? 0 Compute the Index for household C.

15 Q UESTIONS Which household is the most food insecure? Which household is least food insecure?

16 A NSWER 1 Frequency SeverityCSI = Rely on less preferred and less expensive foods? Borrow food, or rely on help from a friend or relative? Limit portion size at mealtimes? Restrict consumption by adults in order for small children to eat? Reduce number of meals eaten in a day? 212 Computing the Index for household A. CSI= (3x1) + (2x2) + (3x1) + (2x3) + (2x1)= 1 8

17 A NSWER 2 Frequency SeverityCSI = Rely on less preferred and less expensive foods? Borrow food, or rely on help from a friend or relative? Limit portion size at mealtimes? Restrict consumption by adults in order for small children to eat? Reduce number of meals eaten in a day? 313 Computing the Index for household B. CSI= (4x1) + (2x2) + (3x1) + (2x3) + (3x1)= 20

18 A NSWER 3 Frequency SeverityCSI = 8 1. Rely on less preferred and less expensive foods? Borrow food, or rely on help from a friend or relative? Limit portion size at mealtimes? Restrict consumption by adults in order for small children to eat? Reduce number of meals eaten in a day? 010 Computing the Index for household C. CSI= (4x1) + (1x2) + (2x1) + (0x3) + (0x1)= 8

19 Q UESTIONS Which household is the most food insecure? Household B is the most food insecure Which household is least food insecure? Household C is the least food inseure
