Regional Vulnerability Assessment and Analysis (RVAA) Southern African Development Community (SADC)

Southern African Development Community (SADC)

Titre : Regional Vulnerability Assessment and Analysis (RVAA) Southern African Development Community (SADC)

The project supports Southern African Development Community (SADC) and its member states in establishing and updating systems for vulnerability assessments and analysis (VAA) providing reliable information on food security situation and related conditions to determine appropriate short-term interventions and long-term policy and projects planning. The project will establish VAA systems in countries without such analyses, update existing systems to integrate climate change with food security and develop capacities for VAA.

Pays/Région : Southern African Development Community (SADC)

Durée : 01.06.2013 - 31.12.2016

Contexte : Livelihoods of many SADC citizens have become increasingly vulnerable over the recent decades, owing much to the declining agricultural production, price volatility, increasing population, the scourge of HIV/AIDS, droughts and floods. Food insecurity and chronic malnutrition affect about 6million of the population in the region. Governments face the challenge of understanding the ongoing severity of food insecurity situation and reasons behind, identifying the most vulnerable population and determine appropriate short or long-term measures. Vulnerability Assessment and Analysis assists in evaluating food security situation of groups of people and in predicting food insecurity and duration. It is therefore a crucial tool for policy-making and targeted programming

Objectifs : Reduced poverty and vulnerability through climate-resilient livelihoods in the SADC

Groupes cibles  : The direct beneficiaries will be national governments of 15 SADC Member states, their specialized institutions and specialized staff related to VAA. The indirect beneficiaries include the rural poor men and women as the information gathered from the Vulnerability Assessment and Analysis will assist in identifying targeted interventions for the most vulnerable populations.
