With the support of the Ministry of Agriculture and the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), RFSAN conducted a workshop at the Landmark Hotel to validate findings from a capacity assessment of food security information systems of significant government, United Nations and non-governmental organizations in Jordan.
RFSAN conducted interviews with twenty-six stakeholders, who are leading the food security information systems in the country. The assessment aimed to identify strengths and weaknesses in information management and institutional coordination and capacity.
Integration of food security and nutrition information management systems (data collection, analysis and processing, dissemination and use), are important to the Jordan government, the region and all key stakeholders since it provides timely and accurate data for policy and programme development and enables key actors to respond to humanitarian needs.
The Regional Food Security Analysis Network (RFSAN) is a joint initiative of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and iMMAP. RFSAN provides technical support in identified priority areas of food security information and early warning systems. In addition, RFSAN delivers consensus-based food security and nutrition data, to support humanitarian and resilience-based programming in the Syria sub-region including Jordan.
