RAPID FOLLOW UP FOOD SECURITY ASSESSMENT Flood and Water Logging Affected Areas of Satkhira and Jessore
Outline of Presentation Methodology and field work process Lessons learnt and Recommendation Key Findings Food Availability: Local Agriculture Dynamics Food Accessibility: Income and other issues Food Utilization: WaSH, Under Nutrition and other issues Coping Strategies and Priority Needs Overall Need in the Area
Applied tools and lessons learned Methodology
Tools used Vulnerable Group Female Group FGD (28) Govt. Departments KII (6) Growth Centers RMS (6) UzDMC and UDMC members Consultation Meeting (7)
Lessons learned and recommendations Checklists required more contextualization Field practice was required for the enumerators Group formation and relative representation of the communities More preparatory work for UzDMC and UDMC consultation meeting is required Preparing questionnaire bank for each of the dimensions of Food Security Organizing a core expert team from TWG members to do this Field practice of the enumerator
Local agricultural dynamics Food Availability
Boro- ‘average yield’ with low price Per acre profit is only 4577 tk. Average yield/acre is almost same as last years Price has decrease almost 27% comparing last year. How much a marginal farmer (less then 1.5 acre) can reinvest?
Limited crop diversification
Other crops No Maize and Mungbean. Only in 29 % of the communities usually cultivates other pulses and oil seeds. Prospect seems to be moderate to normal. Only in 21% of the communities reported to cultivate betel leaf the production prospect is either limited or moderate quantity. Only 10% of the communities reported to have plan for summer vegetables with a low potential.
Cramped Investment Sources If MFI is the major source, can the interest rate be suitable?
Shrimp/fish gher Only 7% area is likely to have a >50% production. Livestock recovery status is very poor. Employment impact?
Income, livelihoods and other issues Food Accessibility
Major livelihoods status
Key constraints in reviving livelihoods `` Lack of financial resources
Child and female labour increased- persisting low wage 71% of the communities sent children to earn money Average wage is only Tk./day Involvement in extremely hazardous work In all the communities women started to work to support the HH Average wage is only Tk./day
Major expenditure sectors
Consumption, under-nutrition, WaSH and other issues Food Utilization
Meal frequency- sign of overall improvement `
Meal sufficiency-in terms of rice consumption
Food Consumption Score
Diet diversity over 7 days ` ` `
Access to water gone back to normal
Defecation point trend: mostly recovered, yet risk persists
Health risk? OD along with child feces disposal is a critical health threat to the overall well being of the communities.
What is going on with diseases?
