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
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
