Durée (phase II) : 2000 – 2005

Description
The overall objective of the project is reducing chronic food insecurity and vulnerability of the people of Eritrea at national, community, household and individual level, by assisting the government with putting in place an effective, efficient and sustainable government owned NFIS. This will provide timely and high quality food security information to assess food emergency conditions, identify and characterize food insecure and vulnerable population groups, monitor food donations and relief assistance, monitor commercial food imports, formulate food policies and strategies, and implement and monitor food security programmes and projects at national and subnational levels. Major support areas are : (i) provision of a clear understanding of the degree and nature of food insecurity and vulnerability, as an input for implementing appropriate and timely actions ; (ii) production and dissemination at national, subnational levels of high quality food security information outputs, tailored to the information needs of decision makers involved in relief assistance, and development planning and policy formulation ; (iii) improvement in human resources capacity at national, and subnational levels to collect, process, analyse, interpret, and disseminate food security information ; and (iv) strengthening of the institutional structures at national, zoba and subzoba levels needed for an efficient, effective and sustainable national food information system.
