1
FAO-WFP Joint Strategy on Information Systems
for Food and Nutrition Security TOPS Meeting
May 9, 2011
2
Rationale and Purpose of the Joint Strategy on
ISFNS (1)
  • Mutual need to
  • Respond to Joint Evaluation of FAO/WFP (2009)
  • Sharpen response to known and emerging threats to
    food security
  • Provide timely and reliable demand-driven
    products and services
  • Improve internal and external communication
    channels


3
Rationale and Purpose of the Joint Strategy on
ISFNS (2)
  • Purposes
  • Provide roadmap for joint work on four pillars
  • Capacity development
  • Assessment
  • Standards
  • Statistics/analysis
  • Advance the twin-track approach
  • Prioritize capacity development needs
  • Contribute to both agencies work under UNDAF


4
Known and emerging threats to food security
  • Climate change
  • Volatility in Agricultural Commodity Markets
  • Urban Malnutrition
  • Trans-boundary Threats
  • Biofuel Food Trade-off
  • Gender Issues

5
Vision statement
  • FAO and WFP will work together to promote
    informed food and nutrition security decisions by
    strengthening national and regional capacity to
    undertake comprehensive, credible, relevant and
    timely assessments and analysis and being a
    global reference for food and nutrition security
    standards, statistics and information.

6
Guiding Principles
Joint Strategy on ISFNS Guiding Principles
1) Aligned with MDGs, Paris Declaration, CFS
2) Addresses availability, access, utilization, stability
3) Covers emergency, recovery, and development
4) Addresses emerging issues
5 ) Products and services consider gender
6) Demand-driven and timely response
7) Sustainability through national ownership
8) Applies and develops innovative methods and tools
9) Fosters inter-agency collaboration and partnership

Strategic Pillars
  • Capacity development in food and nutrition
    security data collection and information analysis
    methods
  • In-country assessments to address food insecurity
    and malnutrition
  • Standards, methods, and tools for information
    systems on food and nutrition security
  • Statistics and analysis on food and nutrition
    security

8
Capacity development in food and nutrition
security data collection and information
analysis methods
  • Assessment of stakeholder capacities and
    constraints
  • Identification of partners
  • Regional and country support
  • WFP
  • -rapid assessment -emergency response
  • -HH livelihood assessment -long-term
    vulnerability assessment
  • -cross-border trade -local market analysis
  • FAO
  • -agricultural statistics -global price
    monitoring
  • -remote sensing
  • -cross-border data pests, pathogens, livestock
  • Policy dialogue

9
In-country assessments to address food insecurity
and malnutrition
  • Organized around geographic and functional levels
  • WFP
  • trend analysis related to markets, livelihoods,
    and food and nutrition security at HH and
    community levels
  • work w/ government bureaus of statistics to
    integrate the food consumption score in Living
    Standards Measurement
  • FAO
  • -long-term development -food crisis prevention
  • -crop monitoring -disaster risk management
  • -contingency planning -post-emergency
    reconstruction
  • Continued collaboration on emergency needs
    assess.

10
Standards, methods, and tools for information
systems on food and nutrition security
  • FAO lead
  • ISFNS community of practice
  • global ISFNS network
  • identification of FNS indicators and measurements
  • WFP lead
  • thresholds for food security indicators
  • guidance on Food Consumption Score, Coping
    Strategies Index
  • emergency assessment standards (HH level DRR)
  • Continued collaboration CFSAM, response
    analysis, IPC
  • Opportunities gender, markets, nutrition,
    disaster risk reduction/management, urban FS,
    climate change

11
Statistics and analysis on food and nutrition
security
  • Wide spectrum of statistics and analyses
    generated by both organizations
  • Objectives
  • Harmonisation of global public goods. Organize
    by
  • Data and statistics
  • Food security monitoring, analysis, and early
    warning and
  • Policy analysis and perspective studies
  • Seamless data stream
  • Timely dissemination accessibility
  • Responsive to users
  • FAO has lead role

12
National Government Ownership
  • Locus of collaboration country and regional
  • Government priorities, needs and capacities
    define the areas where FAO and WFP must work
    together
  • Systematic and purposeful inclusion of
    governments in planning and decision making with
    respect to all pillars


13
Collaboration Mechanism
  • Steering Committee 10 members
  • WFP and FAO co-chairs
  • Heads of VAM and ESA
  • Steering committee incorporated into their
    functions
  • WFP and FAO have one representative for each
    pillar
  • Two-year term
  • Quarterly meetings
  • Steering Committee liaison to CFS, et al.


14
Communication Protocol
  • Steering Committee establishes systems and
    protocols for horizontal and vertical information
    sharing
  • Internet-based solutions
  • External communications
  • Joint strategy supports individual strategies
  • Joint mechanism for communications regarding
    shared work
  • Shared Internet-based platform one-stop shop
