The tools for monitoring the food and nutritional situation and for resilience measurement developed in the Sahel within the framework of the regional mechanism for the prevention for food crises (PREGEC) are shared here. The tools consist of:
Cadre Harmonisé tool: monitoring, analysis and identification of areas at risk and populations in food and nutritional insecurity
Analyze de Mesure de Resilience (ARM) tool: analysis and measurement of the resilience of populations
What was/were the main shock(s) that triggered this practice? What was the entry point for the implementation of the practice?
Several approaches and methods of food and nutrition insecurity analysis (ISAN) leading to difficulties for informed decision-making and shortcomings in the response to food and nutrition crises in the Sahel and West Africa.
Faced with the divergence in information products on food and nutritional crises, the partners asked CILSS to set up a committee responsible for developing a holistic approach promoting all the existing systems on Food and Nutrition Security (SAN).
The technical committee of the Cadre Harmonisé (CH) organize several series of analysis and technical consultations at regional level with the Global Support Unit/IPC (first technical note of the Cadre Harmonisé (CH) in 2012).
