Iraq - Food Security Information Systems Review and Capacity

Iraq - Food Security Information Systems Review and Capacity Assessment

The Regional Food Security Analysis Network (RFSAN), in close collaboration with the Government of Iraq and other stakeholders such as WFP, undertook a capacity assessment of food security information systems and activities in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq between August and December 2015. The overall aim was to assess the capacities of institutions in Food Security and Nutrition information systems as well as to identify strengths, weaknesses as well as gaps in systems collecting, analysing/managing and disseminating food security and nutrition (FSN) information. This should provide a strong evidence base for prioritizing capacity development needs among key institutions, providing better and more timely food security information to decision-makers and covering all pillars of food security (access, availability, utilization and stability).
