Assessment of Chronic Food Insecurity and Nutrition Issues

Dates: February, 2005 to April, 2005

Client Name: World Food Program

Country: Sudan

Summary Description:

TANGO performed a vulnerability assessment for the World Food Programme in Sudan in order to lay foundation for future development activities. The assessment provided information on food insecurity and nutritional status of vulnerable rural populations and proposed appropriate food aid and non-food aid intervention strategies for the future. The assessment was performed by reviewing existing information as well as collecting primary nutritional data and qualitative and quantitative household data.

Community Household Surveillance (CHS) Synthesis Report

Dates: January, 2007 to December, 2007

Client Name: World Food Program

Country: Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Swaziland, Zambia, and Zimbabwe

Summary Description:

TANGO provided a regional report for the World Food Programme (WFP), synthesizing the Community Household Surveillance (CHS) data from four rounds of surveys in Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Swaziland, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. The report identified regional food and livelihood security issues, characterized current and emerging vulnerable populations, and provided country-specific findings. A second component of this operation was to provide recommendations for future community/household surveys in order to provide more relevant and specific information for future rounds of CHS.

Comprehensive Food Security and Vulnerability Analysis

Dates: January, 2006 to March, 2006

Client Name: World Food Program

Country: Comoros

Summary Description:

In response to recent volcanic activity, TANGO conducted a Comprehensive Food Security and Vulnerability Analysis (CFSVA) for WFP in the Union of the Comoros. Using mixed data collection methods, the analysis identified the size, location and characteristics of the vulnerable population and the underlying causes of food insecurity in the islands. This assessment provided WFP with baseline information for future food aid interventions in emergency situations.

Cote d’Ivoire Livelihood Study of War Affected Populations

Dates: January, 2004 to June, 2004

Client Name: CARE/World Bank

Country: Cote d'Ivoire

Summary Description:

Although a peace accord to end the open civil war in Côte d’Ivoire was signed by all parties in January 2003, a climate of insecurity persisted, and the breakdown of basic social services in areas outside government control led to food insecurity in the north and west where many households were forced to eat their seeds. The Government of the Republic of Cote d’Ivoire (GdRCI) requested the World Bank’s assistance, working with CARE as an implementing planner and TANGO International providing technical support to conduct a qualitative and quantitative study in six geographic areas using a mix of data collection methods taking into account the ethical and protection concerns involved with developing profiles of Internally Displaced Persons and refugees who may have been forcibly displaced. The study report consisted of two parts, first a descriptive narrative and analysis of vulnerability for each of the geographic locations. The second part included a set of recommendations for future programming based on needs and opportunities analysis and recommendations for targeting and for monitoring the impact of the forthcoming Relief, Reconstruction and Rehabilitation (RRR) program.

Food Security and Vulnerability Assessment

Dates: February, 2004 to July, 2004

Client Name: World Food Program

Country: Egypt

Summary Description:

TANGO worked with the Government of Egypt and the World Food Programme-Egypt to implement a food security and vulnerability assessment, at the governorate and national levels. This information informs food security and safety net policies in Egypt. TANGO provided assistance in the initial and detailed planning of this activity. A team of TANGO consultants with expertise in qualitative and quantitative food security assessments, advocacy, and policy coordinated closely on every aspect of the assessment design, training, data collection, and analysis. In addition, TANGO developed a strategy to disseminate and apply the findings of the surveys. A key aspect of this work was the facilitation of meetings with Government counterparts to discuss the socio-economic implications and develop recommendations based on the results. Throughout this process, TANGO worked closely with relevant stakeholders to build consensus around a guiding plan of action.
